Sheets and Blankets for Queen and Toddler beds

A family has been gifted a toddler bed (thank you Embrace community!) and a queen bed, but does not have the financial means to get sheets or blankets for them. It would be helpful to provide a couple of sets of sheets for the toddler in case of any middle of the night messes.

Up to $200 for school performance dance team

This student is thrilled to be involved at school as part of a performance dance team. However, the expenses for uniform and other costs has been a hardship to the family. A balance of $200 remains. We hope these teams can be more accessible for more students/families through community members' support. Your help with any/all of the remaining expense will make a big difference to this student and the family. Thank you!

A working car

This family of five is in need of a family car. Their previous car had over 300K miles on it and will require over 5K to repair. Both parents work and 3 kids are in Shoreline Schools. Their wonderful family is always finding ways to give their time to the community. Would be great if someone was considering donating a car. This family could really use one.
