The three Ready to Learn Fair Events will be held the second week of August starting at Lochburn on Saturday, August 10. The following two events will be held Tuesday, August 13 at Springbrook Park (for the Springbrook neighborhood) in collaboration with Lakewood First Lions Club and Thursday, August 15 in collaboration with the Tillicum Community center (for the Tillicum/Woodbrook neighborhoods).
Last year we helped 2,801 kids in our community. To participate you need to be on free or reduced lunch and attend Clover Park, Steilacoom or University Place School Districts.
Caring for Kids is an all-volunteer organization and we need your support to make these events a success. In Clover Park School District alone 71% of the kids are on free and reduced lunch. You can donate by sending a check to Caring for Kids, 237 Eldorado Avenue, Fircrest, 98466 or drop off your donations of school supplies or cash at the Lakewood Farmers Market on July 30th at the Caring for Kids Booth. If you have any questions or ideas to help us, please contact Diane Formoso at 253-279-9777 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are making a difference in our community!
