The Back to School Consortium Event

August 21, 2021 at Shoreline Center

18650 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155
(north parking lot) from 12:30pm - 4:00pm

On Saturday, August 21, the Shoreline Back to School Consortium will hold the 20th Annual Back To School Event at the Shoreline Center north parking lot, 18560 1st Avenue NE, from 12:30pm - 4:00pm.

For the past 20 years, the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park communities have come together to support their students and their success. 

This year they plan to serve approximately 1,000 students.

There are several ways to participate in this event.

  • To make a financial donation, visit and look for the “Donate” button. Or, you can mail a check made out to “Back to School Consortium” and mail to Center for Human Services, 17018 15th Ave. NE, Shoreline 98155. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
  • This year, because of COVID, we will be ordering prepackaged school supply boxes but we will need donations of backpacks.
    • The most desired backpacks have drink holder pouches on the sides and older students prefer solid, dark colors.
    • In July, yellow donation boxes with the school bus logo will appear in local businesses. Backpacks can be dropped into these collection boxes and will be distributed at this event.
  • To register for the August 21 event to receive supplies, visit, or call The WORKS information line at 206-393-4916 and leave a message.
  • Opportunities to volunteer prior to or on the day of the event can be found at or leave a message on The WORKS information line.
