    LEAF has opened a Homeless Student Services Fund in response to the needs of homeless students in District 742.

    Every day, homeless students face the daunting task of trying to focus on a quality education while worrying about the basic needs of reliable food, clothing and shelter.

    Donors who wish to contribute to the fund, which will provide needed school supplies, clothing, food and crisis housing assistance for District 742 homeless students, can make their tax-deductible contribution by clicking on the Donate button below, or by sending a check, made out to “LEAF” to the LEAF address of PO Box 1132, St. Cloud, MN 56302.

    A committee, which will work with the District 742 Students Services Department and homeless student social workers, has been set up to provide oversight of the fund expenditures.
