THE TEMPLE is a proud contributor to Student Homeless Initiative Partnership of Frederick County (SHIP). SHIP is an organization servicing the local community of homeless students in the Frederick County School System. In 2014, SHIP organizers recognized an opportunity to provide basic needs to students after the discovery of a 12 year old middle school boy, living without parents, was approaching winter weather with broken down flip flops. This discovery just scratched the surface — organizers soon realized that he was just one of over 600 children within the Fredrick County Public School system experiencing homelessness.
As a Paul Mitchell Partner School (and just having a genuine spirit of giving), we know that giving back to the community is our rent for occupying earth. This past FUNraising season not only brought an infectious buzz of excitement to THE TEMPLE, but it also brought some funds to SHIP. This summer, Temple Frederick had the distinct pleasure of presenting a check to Ed Hinde, SHIP Executive Director, on behalf of our Future Professionals, Team and owners to benefit SHIP. Year after year, Temple Frederick participates in the national Paul Mitchell Schools network FUNraising campaign always making sure that we also give locally.
This year, we raised money by hosting our annual ballon drop, advanced education classes, spirit week, raffles and casual dress days. With these seemingly small events, we raised over, $800 to donate to SHIP.
We are so grateful for our Temple Frederick Team Members, guests and especially our Future Professionals for contributing to our global and local community.
