Come together for Sand Point Elementary and Charleena Lyle

Brisk clap, friends and families of Olympic Hills. It’s time to come together to support a neighbor school and larger community, and we only have 24 hours to help.

Sand Point Elementary PTA is requesting support to create small care packages for their families who are residents of Solid Ground Housing (Brettler) in Magnuson Park whose lives are deeply impacted by the killing of one of their parents, Charleena Lyle.

We hope to make 230 care packages that include:

1) Notes of support for adults and children
2) Grocery gift cards for parents in $10 denominations from Safeway
3) Bottles or packets of bubble bath for children
4) Packets of microwave popcorn
5) Bottles of bubbles or other happy non-age specific item for children. (stickers?)
6) fruit rollups/fruit snacks
7) gift bags/ribbon

Email point person Bronwen Houck (bronwen.houck@gmail.com) for drop off location. Donations are needed by Wednesday morning. You can also PayPal (info@bronwenhouckphoto.com) donations for grocery gift cards and/or supplies.
