Join the Jewish Community Relations Council in our adopt-a-school program, Making a Difference Every Day. The Homer Davis Project in our effort to reach out to underserved school children in our community at Homer Davis Elementary School, part of the Flowing Wells School District.
Homer Davis Elementary has a high poverty population [in its enrollment] that, at any given time, hovers around 87.7% at or below the United States poverty limits. The JCRC was looking for a school to work with that was in a socio-economic area that required a true partnership, one that was performing, and one that was dedicated to improving the lives its students and the community.
The Homer Davis Project serves Homer Davis Elementary through homework help for students, an outdoor beautification project, snacks and meal packs for the neediest students, as well as providing backpacks and school supplies. The school is K-6 with about 492 students. JCRC plans to attract community partners from the Jewish community, the business community, individual donors and, especially, in the school district’s zip code, 85705, in an effort to make this an ongoing sustainable community wide project.
The Homer Davis Project needs your help. If you or someone you know would like to volunteer as a homework helper, donor, community partner, or sponsor, we would like to hear from you. For additional information, please contact MaryEllen Loebl, 577-9393, ext. 138 for more information.
