Thanks to everyone who donated towels to Hopelink Kenmore Place during June and July at Church of the Redeemer. The donations are appreciated. However, it is time to move on to the 2017 School Supply Drive.
The emphasis is to collect backpacks. However, do not limited your donations to backpacks. Residents need all types of school supplies.
Bring school supplies to the outreach collection box at Church of the Redeemer. It is between the restroom doors in the Parish Hall. The collection lasts through the entire month of August. The supplies will be distributed right before the start of school.
What school supplies do they need?
This is the 2017-18 Elementary School Supply Lists for the Northshore School District.
However, Hopelink serves the Northshore, Shoreline, and Lake Washington districts. Children can be transported back to their original school to provide them some stability.
Also, middle school and high school students live at Kenmore Place with their parents.
In short, residents have wide ranging needs for school supplies. We cannot summarize the needs, except for the backpacks.
To help you with your choices, stores selling school supplies usually provide lists in their Back to School sections.
