The Story Behind the DASD Social Services Welfare Fund

 
Approximately thirty percent of Dallastown students live in poverty. Many families face each day without essentials of life, such as proper food, shelter, transportation, and medical care because of various factors, including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, and incarceration.
 
The DASD Social Services Welfare Fund (SSWF) has been created  for a district-wide coordinated effort to help increase student access to unmet basic needs. The SSWF will allow students to take home some of the essentials they need, whether that’s food, clothing, shoes, basic hygiene items, linens, access to transportation, and much more. It will help enhance the district’s various efforts in supporting our students.

While the  SSWF will certainly not resolve all of the tribulations some of our families face, it will ensure that all Dallastown students’ rudimentary needs are more efficiently satisfied. So, your partnership through financial support to this program would be greatly appreciated. Your generous tax-deductible gift will truly make a difference for Dallastown families in need. Checks can be made payable to DASD Social Services Welfare Fund or click on the link (https://goo.gl/joFSJv) to make an electronic donation.

Feel free to contact Dr. Joshua Doll, Assistant Superintendent, with questions at (717) 244-4021, ext. 4221. Thank you for considering a contribution to the DASD Social Services Welfare Fund.
