If You’re a Parent, Get Your Kids Involved

Preschool & Elementary

  • Smile and say hello to someone who may be homeless.
  • Talk about why it might be better to give resources rather than money to someone on the street.
  • Check out books on homelessness and read them together.
  • Consider asking for socks for a homeless shelter or canned food for a food bank instead of presents at your next birthday party.

Middle & High School

  • Organize a group volunteer activity, or better yet, encourage them to join forces with their friends.
  • Suggest a Day of Silence to bring attention to homeless youth in Redmond.
