Rotary Club asking for aid to help homeless students and families


May 29, 2012

The Rotary Club of Lake Stevens and Rotary District 5050 are working together to fund additional services for homeless Lake Stevens School District kids.

The Lake Stevens School District is doing their best to meet the needs of these homeless students and families that are receiving services from the McKinney Vento Federal Funds augmented by designated scholarship monies.

Do you know that the Lake Stevens School District has 93 homeless students being served by the District this year?

But no matter how hard the School District tries, the needs of our homeless students are far greater than the resources available to them.

But, you can help the Rotary Club of Lake Stevens with a tax-deductible donation that may be sent to the Lake Stevens Rotary Charitable Foundation at P.O. Box 908, Lake Stevens, Washington 98258 or drop it off at the Lake Stevens branch of Key Bank.

The organizations are trying to provide additional services for the homeless Lake Stevens School District kids through matching grants and are outlined below.

The Rotary Club of Lake Stevens currently has $2,500 for the matching grant, which results in $5,000 to support just over five students for an academic year based on 2010-11 average figures, not including meals. With your help, we can do more! The Rotary Club of Lake Stevens is eligible for up to $10,000 in matching funds. Every dollar donated through May 30, 2012 will increase the amount the school district will receive for homeless students for school year 2012-13.
