The kids are back in school and settling in, many with new backpacks and school supplies that were collected and handed out in August to children in our community that needed a little extra help.
On behalf of Fishline, I would like to thank all those in the community that donated those needed supplies. In particular, I would like to thank Patty Kelley and First Federal for participating for the first time this year. It is partners like them that help make this program work.
Also, I would like to thank St. Olaf’s Church, Kitsap Mustang Club, and Grace Episcopal Church, all the Edward Jones offices in Poulsbo, City of Poulsbo, Fujiyama Restaurant, Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce, Starbucks, Curves of Poulsbo, Timberline Bank, and Front Street Clinic for collecting supplies.
Thank you also to Girl Scout Troop 41134 and Brownie Troop 5095, Kitsap Alive Church, Anderson Family, and North Point Church for helping pack and distribute the supplies.
Without the help of our community reaching out to those who need a hand up, this program couldn’t be done.
