Ways You Can Help
Organizations Seeking Donations
Thank you to the amazing Cherry Crest Community for inquiring about how to support students and families of the Bellevue School District during this challenging time. At this time, the BSD is asking that financial donations be given directly to the following organizations. Each of these organizations provide direct support to BSD families with food and/or emergency assistance.

Due to family privacy, the BSD is not using volunteers to deliver meals or other resources at this time. If you have a resource and would like to speak to someone about a donation, please email .
BSD School Supplies for Kids
The Bellevue School District is organizing to get school supplies to students who need them using the 31 daily bus stops currently dropping of meals drop locations. The District is collecting donations to help purchase school supplies (pencils, paper, markers, etc.).  Please donate at the BSD Online Donation Site , select “District Wide” and then “School Supplies for Kids.”  

Please note this is not a school-specific donation because supplies will go on the buses making the 31 stops daily for any student who may need them.
