Kamiak students work to benefit ChildStrive

Apr 10, 2014

A group of Kamiak High School students are working through Youth United to support services of ChildStrive, formerly Little Red School House.

These students are raising funds and donations of diapers and other goods to support families served through the Nurse-Family Partnership program, which serves first-time moms under 25 years of age to help them make the transition to parenthood.

The students are holding their first fundraiser from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 12 at the Mukilteo QFC, 11700 Mukilteo Speedway.

“ChildStrive is so impressed with the enthusiasm of these young people,” said Terry Clark, executive director of ChildStrive. “They are giving back to a wonderful cause and helping their community thrive.”

ChildStrive was founded by parents and the South Snohomish County Exchange Club in 1963.

ChildStrive is a community-based service provider for families with children, ages birth to 3 who have developmental disabilities, developmental delays, or are at risk of falling behind their peers.

Its occupational and physical therapists, speech and language pathologists, special educators, nurses and counselors create customized family service plans.
