San Luis Obispo

Students at Teach Elementary School in San Luis Obispo gave back to the community with a donation to Jack’s Helping Hand and a “For Kids From Kids” toy drive.

Fourth-grade students in Mrs. Robson’s and Mrs. Whitaker’s class worked tirelessly in December to design, create, and market their own products to sell at a school mall. Students had to set prices, create commercials, and calculate profits. After fellow Teach students in 5th and 6th grade, parents and even Mayor Heidi Harmon shopped at the mall, the total amount raised was more than $2,000. All of the proceeds were donated to Jack’s Helping Hand.

Meanwhile, the Teach Elementary Student Council Toy Drive collected more than 200 toys and gift cards to support homeless and foster youth in San Luis Coastal Unified School District.

Two local service organizations recently joined scores of other donors and volunteers in supporting the 5Cities Homeless Coalition’s Winter Warming Center.

Oceano Kiwanis donated $500 to provide five nights of safety and comfort for Winter Warming Center guests as part of the Coalition’s “Adopt-A-Cot” fundraiser. The Trilogy Service Club collected cash donations and new, warm clothing during its Sandalwood Spa fall open house.
