Please help local students

Once again, we’re providing backpacks for students at Scriber Lake High School, the Edmonds School District alternative high school.  To simplify the process, the project coordinator – Carol Rypkema – is asking for cash donations to buy the backpacks and contents, which will be dropped off at the alternative school in early September.  We’d like to provide at least 12 backpacks – a 20% increase from last year (the counselor said they’d take whatever we can give them)  – and donations can be made by check or bank bill pay marked “backpacks” mailed to the church or through the “Contribute!” button on the website.  If you’d like to “adopt” a backpack to donate, they cost $42 each. Your generosity is always appreciated!  Contact Carol Rypkema with any questions.
