GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Local students are reaching out to Grand Valley families who just recently got a place to call home for the holidays.
Thursday the Palisade High School National Honor Society $1,000 worth of cleaning supplies to 19 families helped by Hilltop’s new ‘Home Now’ program.
It’s an effort to get homeless families into rental units they can afford. The students say they feel good knowing that such a simple gift will have a big impact.
Jaron Curtsinger, president of the PHS National Honor Society, says, “A lot of people thought this would do a lot of good right here in the community because these are families with children, so these are mostly District 51 families that we're gonna be helping with this effort."
Home Now says its goal is to put 50 homeless families into apartments and houses by the end of next May.
