North Thurston Education Foundation awarded Kyle the Lewis R. Hawthorne & Edna C. Hawthorne Scholarship. Kyle is currently working and attending South Puget Sound Community College. He said, "It's a blessing I received this scholarship because of how much it will help me with my college expenses. [This scholarship] means so much more than words can describe."

Thank you to everyone who has already made a donation to the Foundation! If you have already made a gift, please consider sharing this newsletter or sharing the video! If you have not made a gift, please consider giving today. 

One year ago, we were gathered at the Lacey Community Center to hear how your support of the North Thurston Education Foundation is changing the lives of thousands of students and families in the North Thurston Public Schools.

This year, the global pandemic has put a stop to gatherings and one of the Foundation’s most important fundraising events of the year. However, the need doesn’t stop. We’re busier than ever helping students and families in need, because the COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for North Thurston Public Schools’ (NTPS) families and students related to child care, accessing school supplies and finding adequate tools for remote learning. Despite the obstacles, we remain committed to helping the district’s most vulnerable students and families.

Due to the pandemic, not only have we seen families need more support than ever, we are seeing families reach out who’ve never required help in the past.

So, rather than create a virtual event – we’re asking you to give what you had planned to give at the luncheon to support this vital community work.

Click here to make your donation today. Thank you.

We’ve also included an Impact Sheet below, outlining how we put your donations to work through the Student Assistance Grant program, helping our most vulnerable students and their families.

Please, reach out if you have any questions.
