Help the kids get ready for school - donate to the Back to School Consortium

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Not everyone has time to shop for school supplies to donate to the Back-To-School Consortium, so the Consortium is making it easy. Donate money through their Pay Pal account. They are just now getting ready to make bulk purchases and donations will help make sure they have the funds to buy essential clothing items like underwear and socks. With monetary contributions the Consortium can purchase in bulk at low prices.

The Back to School Consortium serves Shoreline School District families living with low income and/or experiencing circumstances in their lives that make it challenging to prepare their children for going back to school in the fall. The event will be held on August 25 and donations of school supplies and monetary contributions are still urgently needed. 

You can donate online through Pay Pal at the BTS Consortium website or cash and checks can be mailed or dropped off at the Center for Human Services, 17018 15th Ave NE Shoreline, WA 98155. Checks can be made out to the Back to School Consortium. 

It costs approximately $25-75 to equip a K-12th graders with supplies. 1 out of 4 students in the Shoreline School District qualify for free and reduced price lunch based on family income, that's 25% of the students in Shoreline classrooms.

The need is great and school is starting in a couple of weeks. We hope the community will come together to help the children.
Help us send over 1,000 students in the Shoreline School District back to school prepared and ready to learn.
