Letter: Consider donating to school foundation


With the shortest day of the year out of the way, and boy what a dark and dreary one it was, we look forward to more daylight as one of many things to be grateful for.

The South Whidbey Schools Foundation would like to wish you a wonderful holiday season and a bright 2020.

We are excited to be able to donate an expected record-breaking amount (breaking last year’s amazing amount) to our local public school district.

Despite insufficient funding by the state and federal governments, we as a community can step up and enhance educational offerings closer to what students deserve.

Because the need is great, and we know how generous and involved our community is, we have added a wish list to our website so you can get involved in a more intimate way if you so choose.

If you have some end-of-year donating still to do, please check it out.

We, teachers, students and parents, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. https://swsfoundation.org
