Immigrant students are three times more likely than native-born Americans to drop out of high school. While immigrants in the United States comprise only about one-tenth of the U.S. population ages 16 through 24, they account for one-quarter of the status dropouts in this age group.
That is why Multicultural Mosaic Foundation has worked on developing a fundraising program benefiting 9th grade immigrant and refugee students at one of the most diverse schools in Denver, Colorado, South High School. With the help of school administrators, community support, parents, volunteers from the Mosaic, and you, our donors, we have raised $1448,97 for generous school supply packages
for more than 25 newcomer students.
With your generous donations we had a chance to buy 5 notebooks, 5 colored folders, 2 binders, 1 pack of paper, 2 pack of pencils, 1 pack of pens, 1 pack of highlights, eraser, pencil case, post-its, and 1 backpack for each student.
We would like to thank our generous donors, South High School Principal Jenifer Hanson, Community/Family Liaison, Karen Duell and South High Business Teacher Diane Aqra.
