The Rev. Greg Peters and Maryellen Young of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church presented Chase Lake Community School Principal Sean Silver and Family Support Coordinator Vonya King-Norton with a check for $2,300, the result of donations from the Celtic Christmas concert in early December.
In addition, the school received 343 food items for the backpack program. The members of St. Alban’s also donated $1,550 in $25 gift cards to Fred Meyer to help families in need.
The Chase Lake 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 program also provides a safe and stable environment to our students so they can focus on their education.
