    OPPORTUNITES for a holiday donation:

    1. Wildcat Giving: This is a gift program aimed at helping West Woodland families. Many families feel stress over the holidays. Common causes are financial, job loss, divorce, relocation, illness, etc. We want to ensure that all West Woodland families have a special holiday. We take requests from families and turn them into tags on our Giving Wildcat. This program is 100% confidential---there are no names attached to the tags.

      GREEN tags are specific items that have been requested. For these, please sign it out at the main office sign-up sheet, purchase the gift, and return it unwrapped to Marty Phelps in the office.

      YELLOW tags are for gift cards of local stores that are most requested and will be distributed across the families.
    2. West Woodland Family Support Fund: From time to time West Woodland families may be struggling or need resources to help with emergency situations. This fund allows us to support those times of need.

      RED tags support this fund. For these tags please turn it in with your check written out to West Woodland to Marty Phelps in the office.
    3. Partner School Giving: West Woodland is one of the top ten schools in Seattle for family contributions. Many schools are not as fortunate, and we'd like to share our generosity with another elementary school in the north end. *Northgate Elementary is our partner school and is taking donations to fund their Hunger Intervention Program.

      BLUE tags go to Northgate Elementary. For these tags please turn it in with your check written out to Northgate Elementary to Marty Phelps in the office.

      *Why Northgate Elementary? Northgate’s family population is currently 25% homeless/doubled up and about 78% have free and reduced lunch services. Their diverse community represents 28 languages. Many of their students present with a lot of need. The Hunger Intervention Program provides weekend food support to those in need.

    There are many ways you can contribute during this season, please keep in mind that the Wildcat Giving Program is completely optional. Thank you for your participation and generous spirit of giving to others!
