Dear Families,

Each year our teacher’s union reaches out to support the women and children of the Underground Railroad of Saginaw. The Underground Railroad is a safe haven that provides services for victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, and human slavery.


Annually, the Underground Railroad of Saginaw provided many valuable services to our community, including:

  • Providing 14,000 safe nights in shelter for over 500 women and children

  • A 24 hour helpline and emergency response program

  • Childcare and housing assistance

  • Court support

  • Advocacy, therapy, and support groups


Each year, our school district collects items to donate to the women and children in need, including:

  • full size bottles of shampoo & conditioner

  • deodorant

  • hair ties, accessories, and products

  • toothpaste and toothbrushes

  • full size lotions or body sprays

  • soaps and body washes

  • feminine hygiene items

  • Other hygiene/self-care items...


We will be collecting items to donate February 10th-February 17th. Items can be dropped off in the office or given to your child’s teacher. Please have your donations in by Monday, February, 17th. Thank you for your continuing support of our community and families in need.

Respectfully, Hemlock Federation of Teachers
