Thanks to the generosity of the Kent and Covington communities, Fill The Bus 2013 was a huge success.  We were able to collect over 750 pounds of school supplies, from filler notebook paper, composition and spiral notebooks, to crayons, pencils, pens, binders, and everything in between.  Supplies have just begun being distributed to Scenic Hill Elementary, Mill Creek Middle School and the Kent Phoenix Academy, with even more going out next week.

The good news doesn’t stop there – yesterday we received a generous delivery of 100 stuffed backpacks from the Boeing Company and the Boeing Blue Bills! Incredible!  This goes to show what the community can accomplish when we work together to support our neighbors.

Thank you to everyone who donated at the following locations: Kent City Hall, Kent Centennial Center, Kent Commons, Sweet Themes Bakery, Down Home Catering, Cal’s American Classic, First Christian Church, Renton Christian Center, the Covington Chamber of Commerce, Covington Lions, Kiwanis A.M., Kiwanis Club of Kent, Pembrook Apartments, Hytek Finishes, and St. John The Baptist Catholic Church; as well as everyone who donated school supplies at the Strides 4 Students Fun Run on August 24th.
