Students at Eagle Point High School have partnered with Homestead Log Homes to help a one-year-old White City boy and his family through some challenging times.
The students have “adopted” Joel through the Sparrow Club, a youth-based charity organization. For every hour of community service volunteered by students, Homestead Log Homes will donate $10 to Joel’s needs.
Joel was born five weeks premature and has ongoing health issues. “He is unable to absorb the nutrients that normal people would be able to eat,” said his mother. “”He’s unable to absorb those in his system, so it’s hard for him to grow healthy. He’s in hospitals a lot.”
