Thanks to YOU for Helping us Support the Students of North Thurston Public Schools!
Recently, we were able to assist students and families in need in Thurston County who qualify for Free and Reduced breakfast and lunches at North Thurston Public Schools. The school system had an outstanding balance of $6,012.71 for students who qualified for Reduced Price Meals and $4,308.13 for students who had a balance prior to qualifying for Free Meals. The total owed was $10,320.84 and NTEF was able to pay off this amount for the school system thanks to your generous contributions! We appreciate your support and generosity!
Matt Everland began working at Hops n Drops a year ago and immediately became familiar with NTEF and the variety of programs they support. "I learned about NTEF and then met Mike Jones and attended the annual luncheon last year," says Everland. "All Hops n Drops locations support local organizations that help children and our Lacey location participates in the "Kids Feeding Kids" program. Of each kid's meal we sell, .50 cents is donated to NTEF."
"NTEF's mission is very important, there are so many families in need in this area and children in circumstances they don't have any control over, and these community partnerships are so valuable," says Everland. "Our team member Andrea Fekete is instrumental in helping drive these efforts and acting as volunteer coordinator for the organizations we support and events we hold."
Thanks so much to Hops n Drops and Matt and Andrea! Currently, Hops n Drops is holding a donation drive to support the North Thurston Education Foundation by donating school supplies to deserving kids! A collection box is in their lobby today through September 2nd! Learn more below:
