Shafter High School and the P.R.I.D.E intervention team are pleased to announce the establishment of our P.R.I.D.E Pantry (Federal ID number-95-6001764). With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, our intervention team has witnessed a drastic increase in the need for non-academic support for our struggling students.
As we continue to connect with our community through this pandemic, we have witnessed firsthand many families struggling to survive, let alone thrive. Many families are lacking the financial means to obtain basic hygiene, clothing, and household items causing undue stress for the children; which has resulted in negative academic performance and increased anxiety. The P.R.I.D.E pantry will allow the opportunity to donate directly back to the amazing Shafter community to reach these hurting families.
We understand that everyone is being stretched at this time and would greatly appreciate any support you might be able to provide! 100% of items donated will be passed along to those families in need! We will continue to grow the P.R.I.D.E Pantry so please remember our efforts in the future and share with others.
