Holiday supply drive

We believe that healthy children and families are at the heart of a healthy community. When basic needs are difficult to obtain, this impacts the ability for children to learn and thrive in school. This holiday season, we will be collecting donations of personal care items to support the Family Resource Center located at Shuksan Middle School, and open to all Bellingham families.  The center helps link families with local resources, human services, and access to basic needs in order to support and uplift students and families in times of need.  This initiative is part of the Bellingham School Districts Family Support Services which includes the Family Resource Center, homeless support program, health services, counseling, mental health supports, suicide prevention, social emotional learning, wellness and more.

Items in need:

Laundry Soap  (smaller size containers are easier for families to carry and transport)
Shampoo & Conditioner – new, full size
Toilet Paper
Diapers (size 5 & 6) and Baby Wipes
Deodorant
Toothbrushes and Toothpaste
Dish Soap
Feminine Pads
Bath/Body Soap
Donations can also be made to the Bellingham Public Schools Foundation (check memo: Family Support Fund / Basic Needs)
You can drop off items or checks with us at 3 OMS (we will have some bins in our lobby). We’ll collect through the end of December.
