AUGUST SUMMER EVENTS
This past month, we had our first Backpacks for Kids: Summer Bash at the South Park Community Center! Over 400 people were served during this event with backpacks, school supplies, carnival games, a BBQ, and much more! We felt an overwhelming sense of joy as our team of organizations, volunteers, and families had a blast at this community event. We can’t wait for next year!

We additionally had the opportunity to collaborate on a school supplies giveaway with the Family First Community Center in Renton! It was an amazing event where we provided over 300 children with school supplies and backpacks. The giveaway had wonderful partners including Vision House, Chase Bank, Healthpoint Clinic, and more.
Our Summer events would not have been a success without our amazing volunteers! Their hard work and dedication to serving the community is something we admired and appreciated greatly.

Over the past 2 weeks, we have been able to serve an estimate of 800 children & families in the King County area by providing materials that will prepare and equip students with confidence as the school year begins! It has been a blessing to engage with the community and give back with the support of our wonderful partners.
