Students will be fundraising for Covenant House, an organization that provides shelter, food, clothing, and programs that help homeless youth overcome their difficult situations.
So far, about $500 has been raised for Covenant House.
The last time a count of youth homeless was done in the Tri-Cities in 2018, 20 youth were found to be homeless.
