Back-To-School Resource Fair 2022-23

  • We distributed a grand total of 1,584 backpacks to students from more than 580 families in August 2022. We held four Back-to-School Resource Fairs at Daffodil Valley Elementary, Lakeridge Middle School, Liberty Ridge Elementary and the Sumner-Bonney Lake Family Resource Center.

    These events wouldn't have been possible without our countless volunteers, partners and donors below.
