Caring for Kids What’s Happening
We netted over $54,000 at our Happy Hearts Auction
Along with our everyday work we gave out:
- 5,463 new books (1,128 to CISL after school programs)
- 16580ir beds for kids sleeping on the floor
- 161 McDonalds $5 Gift Cards for homeless kids and kids in need.
We purchased $350 worth of new girls’ underwear for the nurses at the Middle and High schools for emergencies.
So far we collected 115 formals plus purses and shoes for the Clover Park High School Event.
At the Springbrook Easter egg hunt with the Lions Club we furnished buckets, egg dye, gift card prizes, color books and crayons and toothbrush kits for everyone.
We gave the same supplies for the Easter egg hunt at Four Heroes for the thirty-five McKinney-Vento students.
We received over 1,000 new summer shoes and slippers. We have processed and they are being distributed.
We just received a book grant from the Molina Foundation for 898 books and a grant from First Books for 400 books.
In the last two weeks we distributed 1,650 backpacks to the schools to distribute for the rest of this year and the beginning of next year.
We bought 330 pairs of wool socks for $ .50 each for next winter.
Our relationship with Walmart is great! We just purchased about $35,000 worth of winter wear for under $500. Not all of it is for our kids but it can be distributed through the food banks.
We also bought 500 baby clothes and baby socks for $1 apiece. They said they have a pallet of socks will be going on clearance.
