Chick-fil-A Bothell Canyon Park is stepping up to support Northshore students experiencing homelessness by donating 25 cents for every cookie sold in January to the Northshore Schools Foundation M.I.L.K. (Making an Impact on Learning and Kids) Money project.
“The Bothell community has really embraced our restaurant and we want to give back in a meaningful way,” said owner Matt Isenhower. “Thank you to our customers whose support will make a positive impact on 200 homeless students.”
Providing services for students experiencing homelessness has been a priority of the Northshore Schools Foundation for the past seven years. Started as a change collection campaign, M.I.L.K. Money raises awareness and supports vulnerable students who don’t have a home to call their own and struggle to keep up in school. The program has consistently provided the only discretionary funding available to serve the nearly 200 documented homeless students in the Northshore School District. Funds raised are made available to families in need to address emerging expenses for clothing, emergency housing, activity fees, field trips and other costs that are typically incurred by parents during the school year.
