DASD Social Services Fund

The Story Behind the DASD Social Services Fund

 

Approximately  thirty percent of Dallastown students live in poverty. That means nearly 1/3 of DASD families may face each day without essentials of life, such as proper food, shelter, transportation, and medical care because of various factors, including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, and incarceration.

 

The DASD Social Services Fund (SSF) has been created for a district-wide coordinated effort to help increase student access to unmet basic needs. The SSF will allow students to take home some of the essentials they need, whether that’s food, clothing, shoes, basic hygiene items, linens, access to transportation, and much more. It will help enhance the district’s various efforts in supporting our students.

 

While the SSF will certainly not resolve all of the tribulations some of our families face, it will ensure that all Dallastown students’ rudimentary needs are more efficiently satisfied. 

Your partnership through financial support is greatly appreciated. Your generous tax-deductible gift will truly make a difference. Checks can be made payable to DASD Social Services Fund.
