Providing for the Mind, Body and Soul of our Students
Palisades High School is a diverse and extraordinary community where every member supports every family in our Pali High community. Pali Cares is an anonymous support program discreetly assisting students in need.
To support our students’ most basic needs so they can focus on learning and participating with our amazing Palisades Charter High School community. We provide items that our students and their families may not always have the financial means to acquire.
Major programs of Pali Cares
Food: Students won’t succeed if they are hungry. The growing number of families participating in the free and reduced lunch program is over 30% at Pali. Food gift cards are distributed over holiday breaks when school meals are not available. Pali Cares provides granola bars on campus for “starving” students.
Personal Care: Five personal care stations have been set up on campus to support students who need basic hygiene supplies. Toothbrushes to deodorant are available to any student- No forms! No questions!
School Supplies: Pali Cares knows that schools supplies are vital to a student’s success. From pencils to graphing calculators, referred students will have access to school supplies.
Who do we help?
For the food gift cards, primarily students who are on the Free and Reduced Lunch program, Free and Reduced Transportation program, and others identified by teachers, counselors or administrators.
Personal care products (shampoo, toothbrushes, etc.) are provided at stations throughout the school for any student to take who needs them.
Pali Cares is under the umbrella of the PCHS Booster Club, a 501C3 non- profit organization. 100% of what we raise goes back to our students. We run solely on donations and grants.
