Gift Card Donations ends June 5th.

THANK YOU!!
Thanks to our incredibly generous and caring community, the Shoreline PTA Council gift card program, in partnership with Embrace Shoreline Schools and Kinder Konnection, has collected over $90,000 in individual contributions, grants, and support from PTAs, Rotaries and others. THANK YOU! Utilizing our partnership with the district Family Advocates, grocery and gas cards have been distributed to families most in need during this challenging time. This support has allowed them to purchase the items that are most useful for their household. One parent reported “My daughter has food allergies so we have to get specific with her food and the food cards come in very useful. And we can buy foil and plastic wrap and Ziploc bags which you can’t buy on food stamps. My son also likes that he can get some ice cream when they come in the mail.”  Thank you for making a difference for these families!  The last day that donations are being accepted through Embrace Shoreline for the gift card program is Friday, June 5th. This will allow donations to be processed prior to a final distribution of gift cards to families before the end of the school year. Shoreline PTA Council has been providing support to families for many years through The WORKS, the clothing bank we operate year-round, the Back to School event held each August to help prepare students for school by providing school supplies and hygiene items, and the Holiday Baskets program which provides food and gift support during the winter holiday season. We anticipate that there may be an increase in requests for support through our programs this year, so any donations to help us meet the needs in our community would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be made through our website at   http://www.shorelinepta.org/.     Again, we thank you for your support!
