Dear Families,

Each year our district reaches out to support the women and children of the Underground Railroad of Saginaw.  The Underground Railroad is a safe haven that provides services for victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, and human slavery.  

 

In the last year, the Underground Railroad of Saginaw provided many valuable services to our community, including:

  • Providing 14,263 safe nights in shelter
  • Answering 3,380 calls to the crisis helpline
  • Providing 7,778 hours of childcare
  • Attending 2,050 court hearings and assisting in filing 566 PPOs
  • Hosting 1,398 volunteers to serve families in need.

 

Each year, our school district collects items to donate to the women and children in need, including:

  • full size bottles of shampoo & conditioner
  • deodorant
  • hair ties, accessories, and products
  • toothpaste and toothbrushes
  • full size lotions or body sprays
  • soaps and body washes
  • feminine hygiene items
  • Other hygiene/self-care items...

 

We will be collecting items to donate February 5th-February 12th.  Items can be dropped off in the office or given to your child’s teacher. Please have your donations in by Monday, February, 12th. Thank you for your continuing support of our community and families in need.  

Respectfully, Hemlock Public Schools
