ATTENTION STUDENTS: We conclude Homelessness Awareness Week, sponsored by Edmund Rice International. We are working with other Edmund Rice Schools around the world to help the Men and Women of Edmund to become aware of the plight of poverty of the homeless around the world. We are asking all students, as well as faculty and staff to sign a petition we are circulating in support of a bill currently in the Illinois legislature called HB4423. This act would provide a cash grant for many working poor families who are one paycheck away from homelessness. Only families of the working poor would be eligible. HB 4423 would also ensure that child support payments from parents would be used for helping the children, and not be siphoned-off by state and federal governments. Please join us as we fight to end homelessness by helping those who are one paycheck away from losing their home by signing the petition passed around by members of the Advocacy Club.

Help to combat the growing homelessness in our area. There has been a steady rise since Covid began. During the Holiday Seasons the homeless need your support more than ever. The Evergreen Food Pantry helps more than 50 families a week and has had less food than ever. There will be collection boxes outside the cafeteria to help them through Christmas.

Investment Club will meet Tuesday after school in Room 114

Almost all of these migrants are people who want to stay home, but are no longer safe where they live.

All migrants are homeless, and all homeless migrants use the entire of their life savings to find safe homes in Europe and North America. What can you do about it?
