Thanks to two young student advocates from Laguna Middle School, Hope’s Village of SLO is almost $200 closer to providing portable showers for people without a home.

Thirteen-year-old students Courtney Nash and Lizbeth Lua, with help from their teacher Mila Vujovich-La Barre, set up a bake sale to raise money for Hope’s Village’s Showers of Hope program.
