2018 was a great year as we spent most of the year getting to know local social agencies, networking at City of Shoreline City Hall Community Resource Team meetings, getting to know the folks at Shoreline Public Schools, the family advocates, and secondary counselors. The Shoreline PTA Council 6.12, and Jill with The Works have been great. We partnered with Shoreline Rotary Club, and even had the pleasure of meeting Lien Titus with Secret Shoreline. The list goes on… Shoreline Food4Kids 5k, Back to School Consortium, our partnership with Kinder Konnection. There are SOOO many great organizations and community members that are focused on helping the children in our community. It is very heartwarming. ❤️ Thank you all! If you are an organization or business and looking to contribute to the students of Shoreline/ LFP, we would love to connect.
We officially launched our website in September. Since that time, I am so pleased to say that WE (you, me, your neighbors, your friends, and local organizations) have given the following to help students and families in Shoreline/ LFP: (ready?)
$285 towards bus tickets
over $500 in diapers/wipes
a YMCA membership
$555 in gift cards
12 blankets, 5 sets of sheets, household paper products, cleaning supplies,
(I would like to take a moment to mention that many of these items are for families that recently got permanent housing) We strongly believe that a child’s most basic needs must be met before they can be their best.
Let’s continue with our list:
several pieces of furniture
several bags of Thanksgiving food items
poinsettias and wreaths, a childs holiday wish list fulfilled
bed linens, cookware, and funds for a family in crisis from domestic violence.
Whew! This is such a great list but the gift that is even more special is letting kids know that their community cares.
Here’s to 2019!
