Goose Creek Staff Gives Boost to Agency Serving Homeless Youth

Throughout December, Goose Creek Correction Center set up a collection bin for donations of new and pre-packaged socks, underwear and gloves for Families in Transition, a Homeless Student Liaison Agency for the Mat Su Borough School District. The agency is tasked with removing barriers homeless children have to attending school. Lack of socks, underwear and gloves is just one barrier. Goose Creek staff generously donated over 12 30-gallon bags filled with new socks, underwear, and gloves for valley school children pre-K through 12th grade. The agency has close to 800 homeless students to serve this year and Goose Creek is proud to participate in their mission of advocating for homeless school children.
