FOLLOWUP: Pickup day for ‘tiny house’ built by Holy Rosary students

That’s the completed “tiny house” built by Holy Rosary Catholic School students. We reported last month on the project that Mike Ritscher’s seventh- and eighth-grade wood-shop students had been working on, and the plan to donate it to LIHI, which operates several encampments around the city. Today was pickup day.

Sent along with the “tiny house” were messages from the students, like this one:

While the city pays for some operating costs at encampments, we’ve learned while covering months of meetings of the community advisory committee for Camp Second Chance (the only city-sanctioned encampment in West Seattle) that it doesn’t pay for tiny houses, so those are all provided via donations.

     A wonderful response of these students to the needs of others, while learning new skills.

    These life lessons stay with these kids , the staff and teachers at HRS are awesome. My daughter graduated 14 years ago and their focus on community and faith continue to guide her in her now professional career, you all rock, you make a difference never forget that and each of these students have the capacity to make our world better
