Hopelink’s campaign to outfit low-income kids wraps, pick-up starts this week

As part of its annual “Kids Need School Supplies” drive during the summer months, Hopelink is collecting school supplies to distribute to schoolchildren in low-income families to help ensure they come to school ready to learn.

Families in need of school supplies must be low-income (for a family of four, gross income must not exceed $3,677 per month) and have children entering grades K-12 in the following school districts: Lake Washington, Riverview, Skykomish, Snoqualmie Valley or Sultan.

In Sno-Valley, families can pick up supplies at the Hopelink Center at 31957 E. Commercial St. in Carnation on Thursday, Aug.  21, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. or Wednesday, Aug. 27, from 5-7:30 p.m. Pre-registration is not required.

Since 1971, Hopelink has served homeless and low-income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities in north and east King County. Hopelink promotes self-sufficiency for all members of our community and helps people make lasting change by addressing their need for food, shelter, family development and stabilization, transportation and adult literacy skills.  For more information on Hopelink and its services, call 425-869-6000 or visit
