Donations for school kids in the wildfire zone make big difference in Pateros

faviconThe Federation Women’s/Equal Partners Committee presented $150 and a small pink backpack to Pateros Elementary School earlier this month. It was part of the committee’s drive at Policy Committee and throughout the union to help school children in the region in North-Central Washington devastated by last summer’s wildfires.

Carol Van Arnam, a committee member from Local 1299 in that region, said the school secretary reported the funds will make a big difference as the weather turns colder and colder. Many kids who lost homes and possessions are coming to school without gloves. The school will buy gloves and pass them out.

This is another warm example of how the Federation gives back to the community.
