How to help

The importance of proper nutrition for a growing child is well documented. Hungry kids have decreased attention spans, increased behavioral problems, and more school absences due to sickness. Simply put, hungry kids can’t learn as well, and when they fall behind academically as young children, it is very hard to ever catch-up. Free meals in school certainly help, but they are not enough. After all, school is only Monday through Friday.

Domestic Violence Services (DVS) of Snohomish County

As you may have heard, I serve on the Board of Directors for the . They are great partners who have done some pretty amazing work helping families in this area who are in difficult situations. During the past 8 weeks, the Mukilteo Beacon, in partnership with their papers in Mill Creek and Edmonds, ran a series of articles about domestic violence that was one of the best I’ve read in years. If you have not already had a chance to read the series, please consider finding the time as this is an important topic that affects many people in our region – even here in “sleepy” Mukilteo. You may find some information in the series that could assist someone you know.

I am passing the information below along to simply let everyone know that DVS is the recipient of a fund raising campaign running this Sunday at the Taco Time locations listed below. If you’d like to help out victims of domestic violence, here is an opportunity.

Thanks!

Aviation Day Parking – Saturday May 16th

aviation day

Our first parking event with Historic Flight Foundation is coming up on Saturday, May 16th.  Mukilteo Kiwanis provides parking direction at this event.  In return we receive an in-kind donation of $500 from HHF.

We are looking for volunteers to help.  There will be two shifts.

Morning –  10am – 2pm (Will need 7 volunteers)
Afternoon – 2pm-6pm (Will need 6 volunteers)

Volunteers get free lunch, Event T-Shirt and get to take part in the after event BBQ! What a great way to spend the day.

Since there is limited parking due to Boeing Construction parking, we will need to man two Paine Field Airport Shuttles. We will  use of two airport buses for the full day and use them to shuttle folks from the lower parking lot starting in the morning. Once the lot is full we would extend our route to ElectroImpact. (across the street)  We will need 2 volunteer shuttle drivers each shift. Paine Field requires we take a half hour training class before the event. This will take place Monday May 11th, 5PM at HHF.

If you would like to volunteer as a parking guide or shuttle driver please let me know.

Thanx, Gary Webster
