Homelessness significantly impacts the learning ability of public school children. I was surprised to learn during a recent Ypsilanti Rotary Club presentation that we had 361 such students in wealthy Washtenaw County during the 2019-2020 school year! 102 of these homeless students were identified in Ypsilanti Community Schools and 129 in Ann Arbor Public Schools.
To help combat this problem, our Ypsilanti Rotary Club is inviting caring community members to join Washtenaw area Rotarians for Dine and Donate next week during Homeless Student Count Week. By dining at a participating local restaurant, 20-25% of every bill will be donated to the Washtenaw Intermediate School District’s Education Project for Homeless Youth (EPHY)!
Please see the attached flyer for details on dates and participating Ypsilanti restaurants! Enhance the fun and grow the funds by inviting friends and family to eat with you! And please help by sharing this flyer widely through your personal social medial networks! We hope to see you there!
