Avoca West students care about others.

Their concern was evident when they chose to support a special event for children living in Chicago area homeless shelters and in foster care facilities instead of having a winter party.

Students along with Avoca West staff partnered with a nonprofit organization, Fill a Heart for Kids, to provide supplies and other things to help make homeless youth and foster children feel loved and valued.
