Letter | Schools Foundation gives phon-athon thanks

The third annual Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation Phonathon was held at Twin Falls Middle School on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 12 and 13. Thank you to everyone who donated via phone on those evenings and to those of you who have either mailed us your checks or donated on our web site: www.SVSFoundation.org. Your support encourages and motivates us as the Foundation continues its mission to assure opportunities and encourage excellence.

We wish to acknowledge and thank the following, whose contributions helped ensure the success of this year's event: Pia Larson, for poster design; Jeff Hogan and crew, who set up the phone bank; Twin Fall Middle School for the use of their phones, and library for two days; Elaine Marie Kugen for signing letters and encouraging her DECA students to participate; Sahara Pizza in Snoqualmie, for providing delicious pizza, salad, and pop for all the volunteers both nights and for donating gift certificates to each student volunteer; Huxdotter Coffee, for providing a free drink coupon to each student volunteer; MyCakes, for providing gift certificates for every student volunteer; Scott's Dairy Freeze, for providing a free ice cream cone coupon to each student volunteer; the Law Office of Jonathan Pearlstein for water and snacks during the two nights, and Rhodies BBQ for the paper cups.

Of course we couldn't have done it without the help of 70 plus student volunteers, who made the calls, overcoming their fears and discomfort, resolved to make a difference and continued to "smile and dial."  A special thanks to the Mount Si Cheerleaders, the DECA Club & Ms. Kugen, Mt Si ASB, the Key Club and Amnesty International.

It's not too late to add your support for our continuing programs. Please visit www.SVSFoundation.org and click on the donate button to make your tax free contribution today!  With your help we can help every student, in every classroom, in every school.
