Westerville North Student and Family Are In Need After Cancer Diagnosis

A Westerville North student was recently diagnosed with cancer and is receiving treatment in Cincinnati. The family has fallen behind in their car payment and needs their car to travel for treatment. We are hoping to collect monetary donations to help with the car payment and provide gas cards so they can get to Cincinnati. The family is about $800 behind in payments and any money collected will be paid directly to the lender. 

Fouse Breakfast/Lunch Fees

Fouse has several families who owe for school breakfasts and lunches. The families are now receiving free/reduced lunches and breakfasts but unfortunately they still owe for meals served before they applied and were approved for the free/reduced lunch program.  The total owed for school meals is just about $1000.
