Open Life strategically partners with various non-profit and community organizations in Bonney Lake & Sumner, WA, and the surrounding region. We continually ask them to dream big as it pertains to how the community can unite in order to meet the needs that are represented within their organizations. Liberty Ridge Elementary (LRE) is one of our strategic partners, approximately 68% of the families have experienced significant financial hardship and qualify for free and reduced lunches. This is the highest of all elementary schools in the Sumner School District.
The leadership at LRE had a dream in 2013 that the community would unite to provide 100% of the school supplies needed for the 2013-14 school year, and Open Life committed to seeing this dream come true. What an amazing experience for Open Life and all those who partnered with us to see this vision come to completion for the last three years. And in 2013 Sumner Middle School was added to the lineup!
For the 2017-2018 year, we have worked with the schools in need to become more targeted with those students who need help. This year we will be just supplying students with expressed needs school supplies, which should allow our funding to help even a broader segment of our community with their educational needs. With the help of individuals, organizations and the community uniting to make this dream happen, to make school happen! The total need financially is near $14,000 in order to supply the students with the needed supplies for the school year. Open Life will match dollar for dollar the first $3,000 in donations through August 1st.
