Community Schools Collaboration is holding its first annual fundraising breakfast on Thursday, Nov 5th beginning at 7:30am, at the SeaTac Gateway Radisson.

Community Schools Collaboration (CSC), formerly Tukwila Community Schools Collaboration, was established in 1998. It is a non-profit organization created to develop and strengthen full service community schools in the Tukwila and Highline School Districts. The organization’s mission is to “ensure that all students and families have access to resources, opportunities and essential services by engaging and collaborating with schools and community partners using  culturally competent strategies.” CSC’s unique full service community schools model provides supports and opportunities to young people and  their families through out-of-school time programming, health services and community outreach. CSC provides before and after school educational support (including tutoring), health and fitness programs and free immunizations and physicals, family literacy and job training programs, referrals to social services and case management, and community liaisons who work with immigrant and refugee families.

Here are the event details:

INFO: From their press release:

Are you interested in the quality of our schools?  You should be!  Well, have I got news for you…

Community Schools Collaboration is having its big first annual fundraising breakfast on Thursday, Nov 5, 7:30 a.m., at SeaTac Radisson.  Read about this program and how to participate.

We’ve all heard the statistics. The kids who thrive, the kids who make a difference, the kids who have the start they need in life – you know what they usually share?  Strong Families. Strong Communities. They have strong shoulders to stand on as they reach for their futures.

That is where the Community Schools Collaboration comes in.  We provide that support for kids in Tukwila, SeaTac, White Center, Burien and surrounding areas; giving them the enrichment opportunities that we all know make a difference outside of school.

How do we do it? Community Schools Collaboration (CSC), formerly Tukwila Community Schools Collaboration, established in 1998, is a non-profit organization created to develop and strengthen full service community schools in the Tukwila and Highline School Districts. The organization’s mission is to “ensure that all students and families have access to resources, opportunities and essential services by engaging and collaborating with schools and community partners using  culturally competent strategies.” CSC’s unique full service community schools model provides supports and opportunities to young people and  their families through out-of-school time programming, health services and community outreach.

As part of our fundraising efforts this year, we are holding our first ever Community Schools Collaboration Breakfast on November 5, 2009, 7:30 am, at the Gateway Radisson. Your generous support will make a difference in the lives of children who rely on the Community Schools Collaboration services.

Now is your chance to become part of and help our wonderful organization. If you would like to attend, contact Phyllis Byers at 206.244.0110 or email [email protected].  Attendance is just $25! Please make checks payable to CSC and mail to:  CSC, 16256 Military Rd. S, Suite 102, SeaTac, WA  98188 or pay at the door. (Note: attendance is only payable through check. We are not able to use credit cards for this rsvp.)

If you have already been invited, please be sure to rsvp as soon as you can.The success of this event hinges largely on our supporters, who lend their names and financial support to the event. The money we raise at this event goes directly to programs that ensure that students and families in our community have the resources and opportunities they need to survive and thrive.  All of our programs serve low-income families and are provided free of charge.  We know you get many requests for your time and money. Trust me when I tell you that this is a worthwhile investment of both of those things. We make a difference in the lives of kids every day. I hope you can support us, as a sponsor or with your attendance.
