Issaquah Schools Foundation - Help Meet Basic Student Needs This Holiday Season

The season of caring and sharing is here! At this special time of year, we invite you to join us in giving students the essential support they need for success at school.

Throughout the Issaquah School District, the Issaquah Schools Foundation is there to lend a helping hand through our Basic Student Needs programs.

Beaver Lake Middle School Principal Stacy Cho shared the story of how the Basic Student Needs programs made a world of difference for one student:

Let me tell you about an 11-year-old whose family recently experienced homelessness. During the first days of the school year, I showed him how he could choose a new, free backpack filled with school supplies. I shared that free breakfast bars were always available if he ever came to school hungry (and he would come to the office and eat six bars at a time). I helped his family access support from the Nurses Fund, which paid for transportation to doctor's appointments. This support set him up for success at school. It was all made possible by the Foundation.

This holiday season, will you help kids in need by donating to the Foundation's Basic Student Needs Fund? Click here to make a donation.

Dan, Martha and the Timmins family have already donated $5,000, with the hope that your generosity will allow us to raise $20,000 towards the fund. Please join the challenge by this wonderful family to help students!
