Washington Elementary School announces a community project, called Houses of Change, which will help raise money for Family Promise that provides services to homeless families in Evanston.

 This project is part of the January service project that celebrates the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Children are asked to donate spare change in their classroom box that looks like a house. In addition, the children can ex-change their t-tickets or good behavior reward tickets for money to be donated to the Houses of Change. Each class discussed what it was like to be homeless and to be thankful for the things we have. Children learned about what makes a home special and what things are needs versus wants. Washington School extends an invitation to community members to bring any loose change to be donated to Family Promise. 
Anyone who wishes may drop off  spare change at Washington School at 914 Ashland Ave. until  Feb. 6.
