GoFundMe Helping MVHS AVID Families

GoFundMe Helping MVHS AVID Families

Mountain View High School AVID students and families who are struggling with housing and food insecurity because of the COVID-19 crisis need your support. This GoFundMe page is for funds to purchase grocery gift cards. The Mountain View High School administration will help distribute them to families in need.

 

AVID—Advancement Via Individual Determination—is an "untracking" program designed to help underachieving students with high academic potential prepare for entrance to colleges and universities. The 160 students in the AVID program commit to take rigorous college prep classes and are supported by AVID teachers, tutors and mentors from the community.

 


    GoFundMe

 

Because of COVID-19 and the Shelter-in-Place orders, some of these MVHS AVID students are facing even bigger challenges, as their families deal with housing and food insecurity. Please donate:

  • $200 will help cover a week of groceries for a family
  • $800 will help cover a month of groceries

 

Any amount would be appreciated and make a difference.
