Help us create some Holiday Magic
Many families in our area struggle with basic needs and those struggles become even more difficult during the holiday season. Communities in Schools Site Coordinators are located in the highest needs elementary and middle schools in Auburn, working to provide critical services for students. Holiday support is one more way for our caring community to come together to surround students with support.
School staff assist us in identifying students and families needing assistance. We then send out information sheets to find out more about family members and their specific list of needs and wants. We pass this information on our donors in a way that preserves the family’s privacy. You can choose to help an entire family, or one child or all the children in a family.
You can see all of our volunteer opportunities and holiday Adopt-a-Family schools at United Way of King County by clicking on the link to the specific schools below. Once you select “I’m interested in this opportunity” on the United Way site and enter your contact information, the Communities In Schools Site Coordinator at the school you select will contact you to help get you started. Adopters are asked to coordinate delivery of their gifts with the Site Coordinator by the deadline of Monday, Dec. 18.
Thank you for being a part of this effort!
