September 2017 Lake Washington Schools Foundation Ambassador News

Hunger doesn’t take the weekend off.

This fall, the Lake Washington Schools Foundation is supporting Pantry Packs, an all-volunteer organization that provides hand-packed bags of non-perishable, kid-friendly items to schools for discreet distribution to hundreds of students in need each Friday.

How can you help end weekend hunger in our neighborhoods?

– Donate now! Visit or check your email for a message from Executive Director Larry Wright. A gift of $25 buys a student’s Pantry Packs for a month.

– Mark your calendar and get ready to shop! On Wednesday September 20, 5% of Whole Foods Market Redmond sales will benefit the Lake Washington Schools Foundation.

– Join a Pantry Packs packing party, host a food drive, or create Pantry Packs at home! Visit for details.

Together, we can ensure that every child in our district has an equal chance at success.
