Kennedy Students from SkillsUSA bring Project Santa to Tubman Shelter
Kennedy High School students from SkillsUSA, a career and technical skills association and competition, delivered Project Santa to the Tubman shelter in St. Paul on Wednesday afternoon, December 21, 2011. The project was started in 2004 and each year Kennedy SkillsUSA students raise money for small gifts and a party for families staying at the shelter. Sixty stockings filled with small games and toys for young children, six gift cards for teens and thirty-two gift baskets for mothers were handed out to the families using the shelter. The shelter also received a $170 cash donation from the students. Tubman is the state’s largest provider of domestic violence services, with over 20% of all Minnesota shelter beds for women and children experiencing family violence.
