💙 Our cause for March 2022

Ashley is a low-income high school student at the CPS school, Noble Academy. She works with the social services team at the school and they’ve referred her request for financial aid to us. 
Ashley’s mother has been very sick recently and unable to work. Due to this, Ashley and her family have medical bills and other pending expenses that are making it very difficult for her to attend school. Her family is looking for assistance to cover their pending bills this month. 

💰Our fundraising goal:

$500

🤝 Cause referred by:

The social services department at The Noble Academy
