Giving back to students in needAt Inspirus, we’re passionate about education and giving back to programs and schools which support students’ well-being and help them excel in the classroom. We recently gave back to Tukwila School District’s McKinney-Vento Program. A program supporting homeless students in Tukwila School District. A $1,500 donation was made to support homeless students who are in need of basic clothing items, such as new socks and underwear. McKinney-Vento Liaison Jonathan Houston said these are the most needed items of students in the program. We’re proud to give back to the education community and give students the opportunity to succeed beyond the classroom. Help us share the story! Watch the KIRO 7 News footage below, highlighting Tukwila’s McKinney-Vento program and talking about homeless students statewide.
The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law that provides funding to homeless shelters. Tukwila School District has its own program to support housing-insecure families within the district. The purpose of this program is to strengthen the quality of lives of those affected.
