You may have seen this story earlier this week – it’s the ultimate example of the Lynwood Centennial motto, #StrengthThroughCommunity.
It started when Lynwood High School teacher Audrey Casas, who is also the president of Mastering Hope, noticed a family living in the driveway of a local elementary school. She decided to use it as a “teachable moment” for her summer high school class.
The students wanted to give the family’s five homeless children a nice outing, so they started working on a budget. Then, they started a GoFundMe page to raise money for that outing. What happened next was unexpected and appreciated – the students raised more than $21,000. It more than covered the outing and allowed the family to find a safe place to sleep.
