Helping out the homeless students of RPS205


The Kids Need Us is an event that was created by Jeremy Hissong to help the 1,200 homeless Rockford School District children.

On Saturday, Jeremy and a large group of volunteers met at Mondelez International's South Parking Lot to assist those kids. Basic items like socks, underwear, coats and hats were collected. The group says the biggest need is within the elementary ages.
