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.
And.... it's a wrap! What a fun weekend. Thank you to everyone who participated in the 5K, and supported us at our booth this weekend. It was an honor and a privilege to be invited to participate and we are so appreciative of the opportunity. It was so much fun to see our bright red balloons around the festival. Thank you Edmonds Waterfront Festival for a fun Family event!
