The 4th week of school.
One of our storage units got broken into. We do not think anything was stolen but we are going over to do inventory. The robbers tore through the cardboard lids and plastic containers. I guess they didn't want underwear and socks.
We put another family in a motel late Friday afternoon. We took food, toiletries and a few activities for the son.
We are helping Scriber Lake with a service project. The Leadership group is going out on the streets of Seattle to distribute supplies. We donated some men's socks, toiletries and hand warmers. If you have anything a homeless man/woman might need, Scriber is collecting the donations in the main office.
We have a PTA President at a local elementary school collecting donations for a student. She wears a 14/16, Womens size 8 shoe. Her and her mom walk everywhere, they do not have a car. We are donating toiletries and hygiene products and whatever clothes we can collect for the family.
We have a request from Scriber Lake this week for sweatpants and sweatshirts (s,m,L)

Week 3
2 more families in a motel
A backpack filled with school supplies to a young man at a local high school.

Towels, toilet paper, diapers for a sibling, to a local homeless family.

Dental supplies, socks, and granola bars to Scriber High School.

We partnered with the Lynnwood Rotary and the Lions club to provide a staple pantry for families at College Place Elementary school. Now, the moms that live nearby, will have an opportunity to shop for staples like pasta, cooking oil, shampoo etc... at the school where they pick up their kids.

Our community in action!!

Children should not have to worry about if they will have a bed to sleep in, food in their tummies, or clean clothes to wear.

Donate to our Motel fund. A small monthly recurring donation will allow us to budget what we spend on local motel rooms. Time and time again, we are told what a difference this motel program makes to our kids in the district. Winter is approaching, please consider a donation. The donate button on our page will take you directly to our paypal link. Even a $20.00 monthly donation can make a huge difference.

Host a food drive. We will need 50,000 prepackaged food items to sustain our snacks for the bus ride home program through June.

We can offset some of the cost involved in our emergency closets, granted wishes program and snacks for the bus ride home programs through community drives. Please consider a drive through your employer, church, school or community group. We can help facilitate the event. These are wonderful family service projects and service hours for our youth.

Sign up for our newsletter on our website. Our newsletter can help you stay in touch. We post special projects and upcoming events. Share this page with your friends.... our best fundraisers have come from the community.

It does make a difference to the kids in our community.

Second week of school:
Thanks to our partnership with Days for Girls, we delivered sanitary supplies to every Jr. High and High School in the district.
We delivered bags with hygiene, toiletries and emergency food to 20 schools in the district. (The rest of the schools will receive theirs next week.
A homeless family is moving into a motel this morning for one week of warm showers and soft beds, hot food to eat.
A family received help on their utilities.
One child received sweatpants to cover the holes in his jeans, underwear, a jacket, shoes and socks, delivered right to his school.... and a bag of food to take home to his family.
Thank you to everyone who makes it possible to reach out and help our homeless kids every day. It truly takes a community.
