Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Donations and volunteers are needed for the annual Shoreline Back To School event, which provides school supplies, hair cuts, and clothing assistance to Shoreline School District families with low incomes and/ or circumstances that make it challenging to adequately prepare their children for school. 

The event will be held from 12:30 to 4pm Saturday, August 24 at the North City building, 816 NE 190th, Shoreline. Registration closes Friday, August 16. Families may register online

Donations of backpacks, school supplies, hygiene products, socks, underwear and books can be made at locations throughout Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.
