The Gift of Time

On Nov. 28, a group of 10 Foothill students and staff served about 40 families who are in temporary housing.  Many have young children. 

We are proud of these students from our fall quarter leadership classes — SOSC 79 Intro to Community Civic Engagement and CNSL 86 Introduction to Leadership — taught by Daphne Small. They made a huge impact through their San Jose Supportive Housing Family Shelter service project

SOSC 79 will be offered again in Winter 2018 if you are interested in participating in a similar project then!

Thank you to ASFC for providing funds for the food!
