Davis Students Donate to Rod's House. - 11/13/17

Yakima, WA -- Davis High School SkillsUSA members made meatloaf and baked potatoes with toppings and a pumpkin pie to donate to Rod's House, a resource center for homeless youth. The donation was delivered on Wednesday, November 8th.

Rod's House has been a resource center for hundreds of homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 13 and 24. They are open Monday through Friday, 3 pm to 6 pm. Every day, Rod's House greets its youth with a hot meal provided by community partners. Youth also have the option of accessing free showers and hygiene products, "shopping" in the clothing room, and getting non-perishables from the food pantry for the night.

The Davis students were happy to help others and plan to cook another meal for Rods House in the next few months.

Davis High School SkillsUSA members are currently collecting donations of coats, warm sweaters for the Yakima Homeless Population. The Davis Skills USA chapter is planning to do one community service activity a month during the school year.

SkillsUSA is a national leadership organization for students enrolled in career and technical education. Community service is part of our program of work and leadership development objectives, and it enables us to give back to the community.
