Here is a list of current needs of students within the Shoreline School District. If you are interested in committing to fill the need, click on the PLEDGE button and complete the form. We will reach out to you to arrange the details to fulfill the need.
We have partnered with Kinder Konnection, a 501(c)3 to process monetary donations on our behalf through Paypal. Please be sure to add a note in the comments of the paypal page with the item you are pledging for and that it is for Embrace Shoreline Schools.
We do hope to be able to post updates and successes on our blog but anonymity for both the giver and receiver will be upheld.

$ 200 toward performance dance team fees
Being involved in an extracurricular activity is highly correlated with academic success and other positive outcomes, such as less risky behaviors. These teams give opportunities for skill building, increased self esteem and positive team involvement. Helping students be involved in these ways makes our community safer and healthier! Every student should have the chance to join these teams, not just the financially advantaged students

VISA or grocery gift cards
This family lives on a limited income and they have been temporarily displaced from their apartment due to plumbing problems. They are staying in a hotel and are running short on funds due to having to eat out a lot since they don't have access to a full kitchen. Gift cards that can be used for groceries or gas would be helpful.

Bus Vouchers/ Tickets
There are frequent requests for bus vouchers to help high school students get around as needed. This is not just to school but to work and after school activities. King County Metro offers reduced pricing for these vouchers for schools. Checks made out to King County Metro in values of $15, $30, or $45 is the best way to help us with these.
