Drop off at Woodinville Weekly
Northshore School District’s 12th annual Backpacks for Kids school supply donation campaign will run through August 5. The school district, Woodinville Chamber and the Northshore Kiwanis are coordinating a community-wide drive to benefit 750 Northshore students whose families are unable to send their children to school with necessary school supplies.
Local businesses and churches, including the Woodinville Weekly (13400 N.E. 175th St., Ste. C.), have volunteered to be collection sites during the donation drive. Northshore is currently looking for volunteers to help assemble backpacks on August 11. Student community service hours are available upon request. Monetary donations (payable to Backpacks for Kids) can be sent to the Northshore School District Administrative Center, 3330 Monte Villa Parkway, Bothell, WA 98021.
Northshore School District families in need of this resource should contact their school nurse. Go to www.nsd.org/backpacks for a complete list of requested school supplies and donation collection sites.
