A Celtic Christmas Concert at St. Alban’s Episcopol Church earlier this month raised $1,525 for Edmonds’ Chase Lake Community School. In addition, the school received 360 food items for the back-pack program plus four bags of fleece blankets combined with toys or books as gifts for students. The members of St. Alban’s also donated $1200 for $25 gift cards to either Fred Meyer or WinCo to help families in need.

Chase Lake’s Safety Net program works to reduce hurdles to success caused by poverty, homelessness, and family disruption, providing immediate emergency help with basic needs (food, clothing, transportation) as well as family advocacy and help connecting with community providers. The goal is to ensure a safe and stable environment for students so they can focus on their education.

To support the Safety Net Program, contact Family Support Coordinator Vonya King-Norton at 425-431-2330 or at king-nortonv@edmonds.wednet.edu.
