For the past three weeks, we have helped a mom and her kids who were forced to leave their apartment because there was mold growing in their walls. They have no where to go while the city and landlords work out a solution.
We helped a Dad and his three kids, they have been living in their car for the last 2 months, kids were all sick, they needed a little break. A week in a motel should help them on their way to recovery.
We currently have a mom and two kids staying safely in a local motel. They do not have a car and have exhausted all other options while waiting for shelter space to open up.
We purchased diapers for a special needs student.
We purchased prom tickets for one very excited young lady.
Things we need help with:
We have a young lady that needs licensed child care for her 5 month old son so she can continue to go to school.
We are able to provide an immediate response to students needs with your help.
We are gearing up for our Silent Auction... Did you know this is our largest fundraiser of the year? 100% of the money raised goes directly into our programs. Do you have your tickets?
Our friends at C'est la Vie and 190 Sunset are hosting a Pre-Holiday Sip and Shop event at 190 Sunset on October 24th. They'll be collecting teen/adult sized pajama pants for Washington Kids in Transition (hint: your donation enters you into a great raffle!). Tickets are $25 and include two glasses of wine along with a selection of appetizers.

What. A. Day! We had over 100 volunteers show up for Day of Caring and packed nearly 15,000 snack bags for McKinney Vento students! For reference, we distributed 32,500 last school year. So this sets us up to meet the needs of our kids for a good amount of time! Thank you to our afternoon shift of volunteers from Premera Blue Cross and Crane Aerospace & Electronics for your hard work on our last shift of the day! ❤️
Our afternoon volunteers are working hard at the United Way Day of Caring! Thank you to Verdant Health Commission, Village Life, Crane Aerospace & Electronics, and the Latinx Club members from Meadowdale High School for lending a hand!
