School supplies needed for the Back to School event August 27

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

If you are at or around the poverty level and you need some help getting your kids prepared for school, register for the Back to School Event by August 19 on the BTS website or by calling 206-393-4916.

One out of four children in the Shoreline school district is living at poverty level. Organizers expect around 2,000 children at the event, which will give each child a backpack full of grade level school supplies, and help them with clothing.

The event will be held at North City Elementary, 816 NE 190th St, Shoreline WA 98155.

Because of the number of children expected, organizers say that they are far from reaching their goals and ask for help from the community. 

Most stores are starting sales on school supplies and there are donation boxes all over the district.

Buy supplies at any store, then look for a large cardboard box with the BTS school bus logo.  Here's a list of locations.

If you don't have time to shop,
  • make a donation online using the paypal link on the website,
  • make a check out to the Back to School Consortium and mail or drop it off at the Center for Human Services, 17018 15th Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155
