It’s not a coincidence that attitude is part of the word gratitude. At School on Wheels, we see children every day who do not have access to things we often take for granted like food, clothing and housing. Despite having to meet these basic needs, what is always clear is the amazing attitudes our kids have. So during this time when we reflect on what we are thankful for, we wanted to share with you the things our kids are thankful for. Thanksgiving gives us all an opportunity to thank our supporters for providing hope to homeless children. Because of your time, gifts and commitment to these children, they and we have even more for which to be thankful.
With sincerest thanks and gratitude,
