    Class of 2021 Holiday Wreath fundraiser

    Congratulations, Class of 2021, on your Holiday Wreath fundraiser... 55 class members raised over $3,000. Two class members hit or exceeded the 25 wreaths/free senior card threshold. Wreaths will be available for pick up, preferably by the seniors, after 1pm on Monday, Nov. 30th. It will be difficult to track individual sales for distribution so, really, seniors plan on being there to pick up your wreaths or let me know when you will pick up... Dana Williams, Class Advisor

    Bright Futures – Holiday Hands

    Hard economic realities are impacting some of our families and in this time as we head into winter, the Bright Futures Committee is reaching out to you all to see if you are willing to help.

    Our goal is to provide $220 worth of support for food and other needs (toiletries, clothing, shoes, coats, etc.) to each of our Ingraham Bright Futures families in the 2020 Winter Holiday Season. Last year we sent home 44 holiday food baskets and gifts for 97 children via our Holiday Hands Program.  We expect that need to be significantly higher this year since we have more than 57 housing insecure or homeless kids/families depending on the school as a stabilizing resource. $220 will support a family of four in our Winter Holiday Hands gift giving.  

    Would you like to be a part of making the Winter Season a bit easier on these families in this challenging time?  We would be grateful to receive donations by Friday, December 4th to give us time to get gift cards out to families in need, via a COVID safe delivery mode. We will continue to accept your generous donations until the end of the giving year of 2020.

    Your donations may be made by clicking the link below:


    ***donors should choose FOI Bright Futures as donation type***

    If your family is struggling to provide basic needs this year, please contact your child’s counselor or call 206.252.3895.  Blessings to all our Ram Families – we are grateful we can share in this challenging time as a supportive and caring community.
