The food pantry at our Educare location is so successful, families rely heavily on it, so much so that we are expanding the program to include a pantry at Heritage Headstart locations; Seola and Greenbridge.
HELP FILL UP THOSE PANTRIES! 37% of families at Educare reported that they worry about running out of food. 19% of families at Educare reported they run out of food at the end of each month. 10 families last year reported they were homeless 22 families last year reported they were depressed due to homelessness and food scarcity Roughly 90% of families fall into the poverty federal income guidelines Donate your nonperishable food items to directly impact our PSESD community members. There will be collection bins located in the main lobby in Renton, Transportation (Pacific), Puyallup and Educare. Bring in your items September 18 through September 29.
