As a Homeless Liaison for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District’s Students in Transition Program, I’d like to take a moment and thank the Rotary Club of Homer Downtown, Rotary District 5010, and the Homer Foundation for their outstanding contribution to the “Polars for Peeps” project. This project strives to ensure all elementary-aged homeless children in the Homer area have sufficient cold-weather clothing. Because of their generosity, children who enter the program this winter will benefit from this warm, heartfelt gift. On behalf of these children and their parents, thank you.
