The ROAR Resource Center at Roy High School is being developed to provide food, clothing and additional assistance for students in need and their families. This resource is available for use throughout the Roy Cone.
 
In December, our food pantry served 228 students and their families. We feel very grateful to provide this service, and we are thankful for all the donations of food and personal hygiene items we've received. Thank you to everyone who has helped us grow! We are expanding quickly, and we appreciate your support! 
 
We are currently gathering clothing to stock a new clothing center. We're just getting started, and we're excited. Along with a few bags of clothes and a couple of coats, we currently have some gently used shoes. We likewise have several blankets. Our goal is to greatly expand our clothing pantry.
 
If you have interest in helping us, we welcome your involvement. Our food pantry wish list currently includes healthy snack foods and dinners in a bag. We are also going to need more shelving, clothing racks and bins, and we are looking for a fridge, freezer, washer and dryer. If you have connections, would you please let us know? Similarly, whenever you're making charitable donations, coordinating service projects and/or cleaning out your closets, please consider contributing to Project ROAR. We welcome financial contributions, as well as donations of products and services to help our students. Donations are tax-deductible.
 
Please help us spread the word about the resources we have available in the ROAR Resource Center. If you are aware of students and families with food, clothing or other needs, please reach out to Jennifer Christensen, Project ROAR's grant facilitator and community liaison, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

She will then coordinate with Camie Walworth, our new Family and Youth Advocate Specialist and with Charlie Lovatt, our new Resource Integration Coach.
