The 2011 Holiday Season Has Begun...

Our doors are open for the 2011 Holiday shopping season.......We are open daily thru December 23rd.....Come On In!

Our charity this year is the Natrona County School District #1 Homeless Student Program. We are selling ornaments on our charity tree and/or you may purchase raffle tickets for a chance at winning a gift basket filled with over $175 in store merchandise, 100% of the proceeds from both will benefit this cause... 

In 1999 the Natrona County School District #1 started the Homeless Student Program. The NCSD #1 Homeless Program is able to provide a variety of services to homeless students identified in grades Pre-K to 12. The program goal is to provide services that will allow the student to have academic success despite their current living situation.

A student is identified as homeless when they are:
-Living in a shelter (Seton House, Rescue Mission, Life Steps, Self Help)
-Living in a car
-Living in a campground
-Living in a motel
-Doubled up

Did you know that this program identifies approximately 300 homeless students per school year in Natrona County?

Please contact Greta Hinderliter at (307) 253-4337 if you or your staff has identified or suspect that a student is homeless....
