We are providing backpacks and customized kits of school supplies for nearly 2000 students from low income families in the Bellevue (WA) School District during the 2021 annual Good Start Back to School project in August. Because of far-reaching impacts of the pandemic, numbers of students needing help soared during our 25th anniversary project last summer, and we served far more than ever before.
