Our Warwick community is hurting.
We need your help today.
Daily Anxiety. Depression. Grief. Suicidal thoughts. Too many Warwick students have already been identified as struggling with these mental health issues. High school and middle school kids, even our littlest ones are not immune. What’s more, the recent tragedies in our district have added a new layer of complex emotions to life. What we need is a new and creative method of delivering emotional support inside our schools. And we need it now.
In recent weeks, Facility Therapy Dogs were used in Warwick High School. Our Administrators saw firsthand the peaceful benefits of Facility Therapy Dog interaction with students in times of crisis. That experience, coupled with extensive research about the ways Facility Therapy Dogs enrich learning on a daily basis, and the successful implementation of Facility Therapy Dogs by surrounding school districts, confirmed and accelerated the need to place a dog in each of our six schools.
Can we count you in? Please consider a gift today.
Paws make connections...
Facility dogs are for all students. The presence of a Facility Therapy Dog allows teachers and staff to better meet student needs, keep them safe, and ease difficult situations. It works because Facility Therapy Dogs are calm, obedient and highly intelligent in their ability to interact with people of all age groups.
Warwick Education Foundation has created a giving platform where community members—like you—can securely make tax-deductible contributions that will raise money for the purchase and provision of three Facility Therapy Dogs.
We can’t afford to wait any longer. Please give today.
