Guess what we got to do today!! The very special young ladies at the Girls who Care Club rented out the Edmonds theater, and partnered with Washington Kids in Transition to bring over 100 McKinney Vento students and their families to watch "Finding Dory". The families were treated to popcorn, drinks and the excitement of seeing a first run movie. This is just one of many special programs Washington Kids will be involved with in days ahead. So very proud of the Girls who care for caring in our community!
Today we.... paid for a week for a mom and her daughter at a local motel. We bought clothes for the little girl who only had the clothes on her back. We paid three nights for a family that is waiting to bring their child home from the hospital. We sent our last 10 bins for the year of small food bags to the bus drivers for distribution. We bought Scriber students sandwiches and popcorn for their year end after school club counselors party and we supplied pantry items for Cedar Valley's staple pantry. The Cedar Valley staple pantry supplies families with rice, beans,fruit and vegetables, cooking oil, laundry soap, shampoo, toothpaste....items that are needed, but, dont always last until the end of the month. We are able to do this because we have the support of our community. We thank you and we appreciate your help. With your help, we are able to wrap our collective arms around the McKinney Vento students and show them we are a community that cares. We make a difference in the lives of the 622 transitional students that live in our school district. Thank you for your continued support.
