Lead Volunteers:  Ashlee Alem and Kelley Ray

Halstead Academy joined the Network in November, 2019.

Halstead Academy has students in grades K-5 with a current enrollment of 492 students.  Of these, 92% live in severe poverty: 452 qualify for Free Meals, 271 depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and 20 are currently identified as homeless.  Many others live in families who make too much to qualify for meal assistance, but not enough to make ends meet.

The lead volunteers are Ashlee Alem and Kelley Ray, who work with school staff to fulfill student needs and stock and organize the room for students, known as the Care Closet.
