Of the 1,500 students enrolled in Castle Rock schools, 45% qualified for free or reduced-price lunches in 2019. This means that more than 600 Castle Rock students were living close to or at the poverty level at the beginning of the last school year. With current unemployment levels reaching record highs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our students need our support now more than ever before.
Our Castle Rock partner is the Castle Rock School District and the Castle Rock PTO. Every year, volunteers have worked hard to distribute the hundreds of pounds of school supplies donated by the community to those students most in need.
As Castle Rock students begin the 2020-2021 school year, they are facing new challenges that come with unique requirements. Your donations will help the Castle Rock School District acquire the necessary resources to support Castle Rock students throughout the coming school year.
100% of the funds raised through our online Fill the Canoe Back to School Drive will be matched by Red Canoe Credit Union*, then given directly to the Castle Rock School District.
