Northshore School District's 13th annual Backpacks for Kids school supply donation campaign runs July 13 through August 3. The school district, Education Committee and the Northshore Kiwanis are coordinating a community-wide drive to benefit more than 850 Northshore students whose families are unable to send their children to school with necessary school supplies. Northshore School District families in need of this resource should contact their school office.
Local businesses, civic buildings and churches have volunteered to be collection sites during the donation drive. A list of special donors and community collection sites can be found at www.nsd.org.
Northshore is currently looking for volunteers to help assemble backpacks on August 10. Student community service hours are available upon request. Contact Cecilia Shumate at 425.408.7670 or email@example.com if you’d like to help assemble backpacks on August 10 or for program information.
Monetary donations (payable to Backpacks for Kids) can be sent to the Northshore School District Administrative Center, 3330 Monte Villa Parkway, Bothell, WA 98021.
