Highline provides school supplies to students in need throughout the district. Many of these supplies are distributed in August of each year when Back to School Resource Fairs are held in Des Moines, SeaTac, Burien, and White Center. The Foundation also provides school supplies to counselors, family liaisons, and social workers at each school so that they can be distributed throughout the school year.
Ahead of the 2020-2021 school year, Highline Schools Foundation was able to distribute approximately 6,500 packs of school supplies to students in need throughout the district through school bus delivery and directly to school buildings. Then again in Spring of 2021, we assisted by providing more supplies as students began to return for in-person instruction.
As planning for Fall 2021 begins, we are considering all options to ensure that students receive the school supplies they need to arrive to school ready to learn.
You can support the Foundation in ensuring that every student has the supplies they need through a gift for basic needs, through the Donate button above.
