SCVi Students Building a House for Homeless Veteran
November, 2017 - Issue #158
Fourth and fifth graders at Santa Clarita Valley International School are asking for the community's assistance with fundraising for a "tiny house" they are building for a homeless veteran.

The project - being guided by renowned "tiny house" designer and local philanthropist Elvis Summers - initially was to complete a safe, durable, sustainable and appealing home in any area of the world, considering landforms and natural disasters. Through this planning process, SCVi's students created blueprints, supply lists, budgets and scale models of their tiny homes.

As the project evolved, the students decided to build a real "tiny house" for a veteran in need - a decision that will not only extend their learning, but also provide them with the experience that comes with giving back.

"It's critically important to remember veterans in our communities who are struggling financially and emotionally," says Amber Raskin, founder of iLEAD Schools. "That's why our amazing young learners at SCVi are asking for help to raise funds for this important project that will change a veteran's life."



"We need supplies including building materials, tools and furnishings," SCVi Facilitator Tina Toval says. "Our school, families and learners would be so grateful to receive these funds and help a veteran who deserves a tiny home built with love."
