With the start of the school year fast approaching, LifeWire is asking the community for help in providing school supplies to our kids and teens in need.  Starting the new school year equipped with basic school supplies can make a remarkable difference in building confidence and success for kids in school.


"Many of these children have never had the luxury of being prepared for the school year," LifeWire executive director Barbara Langdon said in a statement.  "They have been living in our homeless shelter, will be starting over at a new school, and as a result can have a hard time focusing on their school work because of the instability in their lives."


Donors and businesses can make a big difference in the lives of LifeWire children and teens by donating supplies from our Back to School Wish List (see column on the right) or by making an online donation.  We will collect items until September 2nd (Labor Day).  Backpacks and supplies will be hand-delivered to LifeWire kids before school starts.  


Donated items can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at LifeWire's office in Bellevue and any day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. at The Game Neighborhood Grill & Bar in Kirkland:


*LifeWire: call or email Karen Jones at       

  425-562-8840 ext. 319 or

*The Game Neighborhood Grill & Bar:

LifeWire will be in grade schools and high schools throughout the year as we educate kids on safety, healthy relationships and how to prevent and end domestic violence.


Together we are creating safe and peaceful communities for victims and children facing domestic violence.  Your support makes a profound difference in the lives of so many who need our services.
