Our effort to provide food, cleaning supplies, and books to children and families in our school district community is up and running -- and we have a name: “Redmond Cares”!
Redmond Cares is currently accepting monetary donations via GoFundMe which will be utilized to purchase resouces for Redmond families in need.
If you are interested in receiving resources from Redmond Cares, please click here to fill out the form requesting a free box of food and supplies for the weekend. Redmond Cares Weekend Food & Supply Boxes will be delivered on Fridays, beginning April 17.
If you are interested in assisting with our project, we need your help! We are ready to accept donations of time, food, and supplies. Please read this entire email for all of the details.
