Pursue 2021 Mission Project

Mendenhall Elementary serves almost 600 students every day. Of those students, 86% have low socio-economic status. Unfortunately, Mendenhall serves one of the highest percentages of students dealing with homelessness, single-parent homes, immigration and/or students dealing with other issues in the home such as domestic violence, mental health issues, or joblessness.

It is because of this that Mendenhall relies heavily on the support of agencies and the community to bridge the gap between providing an atmosphere of learning and meeting our families' most basic needs. 

Support the children and families of Mendenhall Elementary this spring by bringing the below basic needs to Pursue 2021 on April 16-17. 

  • Girls Leggings (m-xl)(women's s/m)
  • Boys Sweats (m-xl)(men's s/m)
  • Hoodies (boys/girls m-xl)(adult s)
  • Socks (boys/girls: shoe size 4-5 toddlers - adult 7-8)
  • Children's Masks
  • Hygiene Items
    • Toothpaste
    • Toothbrushes
    • Comb
    • Brush
    • Girls maxi pads (s/m)
    • Shampoo
    • Soap/body wash
