The Highline Schools Foundation is still in dire need of food donations for local students.

Here’s more info from the good folks at Pollock Insurance:

Anne with the Highline Schools Foundation just stopped by our office to pick up our monetary donations from our food drive but we are still in need of more food donations for our local students. She shared these numbers with me:

  • 150-160 – backpacks of food sent home each week at the elementary/middle school level.
  • 100-125 – students served each week at the Highline High School Food Pantry.
  • 770 – homeless students in the Highline School District.

As you can see, the need is great. Our office is still collecting food donations for the Highline Schools Foundation through January 15th, 2018. You can drop your donation off M-F from 8am-5pm at our office just east of Highline High School on 152nd. Pollock Insurance – 654 South 152nd Street – Burien, WA.
