TAKE THE CHALLENGE
COTS needs your school to help
Check in at 1 p.m.; Walk at 2 p.m.
Why should I do it?
- A Challenge Walker individual or team agrees to raise $1,000 or more for COTS to support shelter and services for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
- An anonymous donor has generously donated a matching grant for
- Challenge Walker donations. So, your Walk efforts go even further when you agree to take the challenge.
WHY SHOULD I DO IT?
- Prevent a family from becoming homeless:
- $1,000 is the average amount it takes to help a family stay in their home;
- Make a difference in your community;
- Support critical services for neighbors in need;
- Develop your leadership skills;
- Fulfill community service requirements;
- Enhance your school transcript and college applications;
- Learn about homelessness and how COTS implements solutions to end the crisis;
- Challenge Walker teams receive public recognition in the COTS newsletter, on the COTS website at the Annual Meeting;
- Students who organize teams receive a letter of commendation from the COTS Board of Directors.
WHAT MORE CAN I DO?
