It’s hard to face the idea that summer is coming to an end, but in homes around the country, families are organizing supplies and back packs for that looming first day of school. At Mary’s Place, it’s no different! More than 100 kids of all ages visit Mary’s Place with their families each day and most of them will be heading off to school next month. We need lots and lots of notebooks, paper, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, calculators, and backpacks! Here are a couple of ways that you can help:
Check out our SCHOOL WISH LIST at Amazon Smile! And when you buy from Amazon Smile and select Mary’s Place as your charity of choice, a percentage of your purchase prices goes to help homeless families! Click on Wish List and search for Mary’s Place Seattle to find our school supply list.
On Wednesday, August 19th from 4-6PM stop by the #marysplacemoms School Supplies Drive in the parking lot of the Mary’s Place Family Center (13oth & Aurora Ave.). Join Diono, maker of child car seats and accessories, and Brooke and her team from Movin 92.5 and help us get our kids ready for school! Come by to drop off school supplies, enter a raffle for a Diono car seat, and meet our families!
On the Eastside? Join 92.5 Morning Show hosts Brook & Jubal at the Wilde Rover every thursday in August from 5-7pm. Everyone who brings in back to school supplies to donate to Mary’s Place gets a free order of crisps with beer cheese appetizer!
Thank you for your help filling this very important need!
