NHS Helping to Raise Awareness for Homelessness
During the month of April, the Moose Lake National Honor Society took on a project to hep raise awareness for Homelessness called "We Won't Rest." The project involved a few different parts:
1. The students stood outside the local grocery store with signs stating facts about homelessness in Carlton County and Minnesota. They also had cans that patrons could put money into as they passed by. Many people stopped to ask questions and commented about what a worthy cause this was.
2. Students were given daily facts about homelessness on the announcements at school. They could also bring in items or donate $1 to wear a hat with the proceeds going to homelessness awareness.
3. Finally, the group got pledges to sleep overnight in the Campground. 43 students bared the cold, wet night as they slept in sleeping bags on the ground or in boxes.
Overall, the group raised over $1,000 for the project. The money will be split between the Carlton County Collaborative, Operation Community Connect and the Welcome Home Ranch. Operation Community Connect is for families, singles, disabled persons, veterans, and seniors who are interested in receiving assistance within Carlton County, especially those who are experiencing homelessness and/or poverty. The Welcome Home Ranch was founded in 2014 by a group of caring people in Carlton County.
