Liberty Mutual donates $ 20,000 to families in need
LYNNWOOD, Washington, August 21, 2021 – The Edmonds School District Foundation announced today that it has received a $ 20,000 award from the Liberty Mutual Foundation’s SafeCo Insurance Fund. The Liberty Mutual Foundation works to support local communities by investing in the expertise and leadership of local nonprofits to improve the lives of vulnerable populations and empower individuals and families.
The Edmonds School District Foundation will use the funds to benefit schools through its Whole Families, Whole Communities program. Through collaboration with local partners, Whole Families, Whole Communities serves low-income and homeless children in the Edmonds School District. The program aims to provide food, emergency funds, career counseling and many other services to families with homelessness, financial instability and persistent poverty.
While many families are still reeling from the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation is working diligently to help meet the needs of students, parents and educators. It is expected that many families will continue to feel the economic burden of the pandemic for several years. As such, the Foundation works tirelessly to deliver important programs to students and families to help them recover.
“We are very grateful for the support of the Liberty Mutual Foundation,” said Deborah Brandi, school district executive director of the Foundation for Edmonds. “This funding will provide food and important services to so many families, allowing them to focus on the things that matter most and thrive during very difficult times.”
The Edmonds School District is the largest public school district in Snohomish County, serving over 21,000 students on 35 campuses. The boundaries span five communities, including Lynnwood, Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace, Brier and part of Bothell.
For 37 years, the Edmonds School District Foundation has worked in partnership with the district to ensure that every student has the resources they need to learn, thrive and contribute to our vibrant community. With a fully volunteer board and active community participants, the Foundation provides additional funding to support students, families and educators in the pursuit of educational excellence. www.fondationesd.org
