Are you ready? Your chance to help improve the physical space at Hillside is fast approaching!
Every year on May 5th, the Seattle Foundation hosts its GiveBIG event. Per their website,
“Each online donation* made to the 1,600 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight (Pacific Daylight Time) on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, will receive a prorated portion of the matching funds (or “stretch”) pool. The amount of the “stretch” depends on the size of the stretch pool and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day. As long as you have an Internet connection (or access to the Internet on your mobile phone), you can participate! And it doesn’t matter if you give a dollar or a $1,000, every contribution makes you an MVP.”
Last year Hillside used our funds from GiveBIG to revamp the Fern Room, the bathrooms, and kitchen, and more! We have all benefitted from the fantastic changes made as a result of your generosity, and we look forward to further improvement.
This year we aim to create a welcoming office space to facilitate administrative work and meetings with prospective and current families, as well as potentially transforming the current staff room into more classrooms.
To celebrate this event, we will be having a student bowling event the afternoon of May 5th. Please encourage your student to join!
