Safeco Insurance® selected Insurance Services Group for a 'Make More Happen' Award based on our volunteer service with Washington Kids in Transition. The award comes with a $3,000 donation from Safeco Insurance for our community partner, and entry in the Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Contest online.
More than 450 students are considered homeless in the Edmonds area of Washington. They might live in shelters, cars or other temporary housing — and when school is done for the day, many of these students won’t have anything to eat until they return to school the next day. Even one child in this situation is one too many, which is why Washington Kids in Transition was formed. The organization serves homeless students and their families, providing snack bags after school, motel vouchers, and the use of “emergency closets” around the community with vital supplies.
We partnered with this organization after learning about it through social media. We’ve donated space to hold packing events, our team members have volunteered time, we serve as a community drop-off point for residents to bring donations, and for every client referral we receive we donate $10 to Washington Kids in Transition.
The work Washington Kids in Transition is doing extends beyond Edmonds – the children this organization helps are our future and each one deserves our support.
Congratulations to Washington Kids in Transition! Keep up the great work!
