The Works move was a huge success! Thank you to all of the amazing volunteers who helped move The WORKS to its new location at the Shoreline Center. We had fantastic, strong, and capable volunteers and excellent weather! We can't wait for Shoreline School District families to shop in our new location beginning September 5th! Like The WORKS Facebook page to see photos of the new space and learn about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
Get help with school supplies! Shoreline School District families can sign up to receive support with school supplies before the next school year starts. At the Back to School event, students can get school supplies, hair cuts, and clothing assistance. This event is intended for families who are living with a low income and/or experiencing circumstances in their life that make it challenging to prepare their children for going back to school in the fall.
Registration is now open for the Back to School Event to be held on Saturday, August 25th at Ridgecrest Elementary. The deadline to register is August 17. Families can register in one of several ways:
Donations of backpacks, school supplies, socks, underwear, shampoo, and conditioner can be made at the Center for Human Services, 17018 15th Ave NE in Shoreline. Other drop box locations include The Dale Turner Family YMCA, the Spartan Gym, Third Place Books and all the Shoreline and LFP Starbucks. Look for the boxes with the yellow school bus logo.
A list of needed items can be found at http://btsconsortium.org/donate.html#supplies. This year’s most needed school supplies are: composition notebooks, ear buds, loose leaf dividers, pointed and blunt tip scissors, fine line color markers, and scientific calculators.
Opportunities to volunteer prior to or on the day of the event can be found at http://signup.com/go/MFtrqvG or feel free to leave a message on The WORKS information line.
