As part of Umpqua Bank’s Community Action Campaign, Puget Sound residents will have the opportunity to vote for one of three non-profits — including our local Clothes For Kids — to receive a $10,000 donation from the bank.
“$10,000 would be a huge asset to Clothes For Kids, allowing us to be even more prepared to serve students with fall and winter wardrobes when our store re-opens for back to school shopping in late August,” said Rob Schwertley, President of the Board of Directors for Clothes For Kids. Clothes For Kids will provide clothing to more than 6,000 low income students and their family members throughout Snohomish County this year.
Clothes For Kids receives no government funding – the services of Clothes For Kids are funded entirely through generous donations from our community including cash, in-kind and volunteer time. To support Clothes For Kids and vote for the organization you can go into any Umpqua Bank branch through May 13, 2011 and vote. The Lynnwood branch is located at 19009 33rd Ave. W, Ste. 200. Supporters can vote one time daily throughout the voting period.
