Alexia Guajardo is a Senior at Highline Big Picture High School, and she is building a Senior Thesis Project around homelessness.

“I brainstormed how my project could engage in my career interest, which is pursuing the medical field as a Registered Nurse,” she told The B-Town Blog. “My idea was to create first aid kits for the homeless community. I began brainstorming what would be appropriate and safe to provide in the MediKit. I knew I had to think carefully on what the Kit would contain. I would specifically be working in the Burien area.”

Alexia is trying to raise $300 to build and distribute these kits to local homeless people, and hopes to provide the following items:

  • Bandages
  • Neosporin
  • Alcohol wipes
  • Sterile gloves
  • Face masks
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Chapstick
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect cream
  • Emergency Blankets

Alexia adds:

Mission: Simply to give hope, encouragement, and awareness of infection protection control.

As well as gaining access for those in need to receive medical supplies that are important to having a healthy lifestyle.

Alexia is seeking help to raise funds for her project, and recently created a GoFundMe page; for more info, or to donate, click below:
