According to the Columbus Dispatch, 14.9 percent of Dublin City Schools students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, up from 4.4 percent a decade ago. Furthermore, according to the Ohio Department of Education, two area elementary schools have student populations where more than 48 percent are classified as economically disadvantaged. Many of these students live in families that are affected by job loss, job insecurity, or health challenges.
If this Grassroots campaign raises $350, then Welcome Warehouse can fund the shipping of new mattress sets for 10 Franklin County families with low incomes. Each additional $35 raised will fund another mattress set. Most of the mattresses supplied are twin size and are distributed to families from a temporary storefront.
During Welcome Warehouse's Adopt-a-Family holiday program local families indicated a need for beds and revealed that many lacked enough separate places to sleep. To address this need, Welcome Warehouse applied for and received a truckload of Tempur-Pedic mattresses from Good360. Volunteers have distributed 140 mattresses to area families and aim to continue until they fulfill all of the remaining requests and referrals from school guidance counselors and local food pantries.
You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
Welcome Warehouse organizes a year-round collection facility and free shop to supply clothing and household goods to families facing temporary hardship. A Dublin City Schools nurse and clinic aid originally began collecting these items in 2006 when they noticed schoolchildren without winter coats or boots. The organization expanded to become a countywide matchmaker that connects underserved neighbors lacking household goods with community members seeking to donate. Welcome Warehouse provided clothing, housewares, and school supplies to more than 850 people last year, and continually attempts to meet demands as they arise.
During the organizations Adopt-a-Family holiday program, which pairs sponsors with low-income families to brighten children's holidays, many individuals shared their concerns, indicating that they lacked beds for one or more family members. Welcome Warehouse responded by bringing in a truckload of Tempur-Pedic mattresses to match with families in need.
