Here's an easy way to make a difference for thousands of Northwest kids impacted by homelessness: Join the Supply Surge School Supply Drive, powered by PEMCO.
From August 3 through August 21, PEMCO and more than 35 South Lake Union businesses are committed to donating thousands of school supplies for local elementary schools that serve a high percentage of homeless students. In addition, employees at our Lynnwood and Spokane offices are coordinating donation drives for elementary schools in their areas. The supplies will support kids at risk of dropping out simply because they lack basics like pencils, scissors and composition books.
Now more than ever, we're inspired to fuse our strengths to do more for more once again. We're working closely with the benefitting schools and Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to make sure the support we're providing is helping students who are the most vulnerable – whether they're learning in a classroom or virtually.
Want to participate?
All donations will be made online at our Supply Surge site. Go to https://pemco.com/supply-surge and choose "PEMCO Insurance - Seattle" from the company names listed. If you're in Lynnwood or Spokane, you can choose "PEMCO Insurance – Spokane" or "PEMCO Insurance – Lynnwood" and the donations will be made to schools in your area. You'll be emailed a receipt for your donation at the time of purchase.
Through Supply Surge, caring individuals and businesses are combining strengths to do more for more! Last year, Supply Surge collected more than 195,000 items benefitting over 8,700 students! Together, we can help raise achievement levels for youth grades K – 5 in our region one donation at a time. Won't you join us again in partnering with our neighbors for good?
