Walk to End Homelessness

Hello PTA Leaders,

On April 2 the City of Riverside is hosting the 3rd Annual Walk to End Homelessness.  This event provides great opportunity to us as parents and community members.

1.) Kids under the age of 18 cost just $5 to participate and the experience they will get in participating in a city-wide event and change lives is priceless.

2.) This is a great way to wear our PTA status proudly, by wearing your school organization or PTA shirt proudly. By us showing up, we are showing we care about the entire child and family - not just what happens to them at school.

3.) By our example in participating, our kids and community see that we have compassion for everyone.  The face of homelessness is not always what we think.  It is a family that has lost a job, a family escaping domestic violence, an 18 year old foster student that has aged out of care.

How can you help?

1.)  Register online ( or the day of and participate.

2.) Share this info with other parent groups/boosters on your campus

3.) Like the City of Riverside Facebook page and share when you see information on this event.

We already love where we live - right?  Why not make it even better!

Contact Sandy Ramirez at or 951-312-4031 if you need more info.

Thank you,
