Did you know that 95% of students in the Tukwila School District qualify for free or reduced lunch and 10% are considered homeless as defined by the McKinney-Vento Act? Please help the City of Tukwila and Tukwila Children’s Foundation make a difference by participating in the Cold to Cozy Coat Drive sponsored by Strong-Bridge Consulting.
The goal is to collect as many coats as possible for students ages 5 to 18 within the Tukwila School District who are identified as in need. With generous discounts (from JC Penny and Walmart) and Strong-Bridge Consulting donations we are guaranteed to serve at least 250 students but there are hundreds more in need.
In addition to Cold to Cozy the Tukwila Children’s Foundation, in partnership with the City of Tukwila, orchestrates several holiday giving events to support families in need. To participate, please drop off new coats (or household items, toys, and students clothing) to the Tukwila Community Center by Thursday, December 4th 12424 42nd Ave S, Seattle, WA 98168
All coats collected will be passed out to qualifying students during the Cold to Cozy Event:
- Date: Friday December 5th
- Time: 4 to 6:30 pm
- Location: Showalter Middle School; 4628 South 144th St, Tukwila, WA 98168
