School-supply drive: Full backpacks, full hearts

There still is time to donate to The Seattle Times editorial board school-supply drive. Please give to help ensure every student in King and Snohomish counties arrives at school prepared to learn.

The drive is an annual tradition that has helped fund backpacks stuffed with grade-appropriate school supplies for a generation of students. On Labor Day, we’ll close the books on this year’s effort. As of Monday, 848 readers had donated a combined $161,144 to this year’s drive — 81% of this year’s $200,000 goal.

Donations help community partners equip thousands of low-income students with the tools they need for learning, from crayons, pencils and glue sticks for younger students, to flash drives, calculators, pens and notebooks for students in upper grades.

The drive is part of The Seattle Times Fund for Those in Need, a registered 501(c) (3) Charitable Organization. Donations of every amount are greatly appreciated.

The easiest way to donate is online. Checks may also be sent to: The Seattle Times School-Supply Drive, P.O. Box C-11025, Seattle, WA 98111. Email questions to [email protected]
