On March 9, the Philomatheon Club (Philo) presented Thompson School District with $1,800 of King Soopers gift cards, which will be used by the district to assist homeless families in need within our district. The money to purchase the gift cards was raised through Philo’s “Dine Out with Heart” program, which partners with area restaurants to allow visitors an opportunity to enjoy a great meal while also raising funds for a great cause.
Dona Menzies, chair of the “Dine Out with Heart” committee, presented the gift cards to TSD Homeless Liaison Jana Ramchander. The district works with the Thompson Education Foundation to manage all donations for its homeless assistance efforts.
The Philomatheon Club is one of the oldest service clubs in Loveland. It was founded in 1918 by a group of Loveland High School students who were looking for a way for young women to come together in friendship and service to the community. TSD is very thankful to Philo and all of their supporters for this amazing donation!
