West Seattle Rotary First Friday event will benefit Powerful Schools

The Rotary Club of West Seattle is holding a fundraiser/donation drive for Powerful Schools at Marination Ma Kai on Friday, Jan. 4.

Here are the details:

This Friday will be our first Friday event at Marination Ma Kai (1660 Harbor Ave S.W.) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for Powerful Schools.

Powerful Schools gives every child the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential. This means making college or career readiness the expected path for ALL children. Through literacy programs, arts and after-school classes, we work in pre-schools and elementary schools to prepare children right from the start.

Powerful Schools believes in an holistic approach to education. This includes striving to not only meet each of our programs expected outcomes, but also aligning all of our programs to our core values: the 4 E’s of Education.

We would like to build on the success of our past four First Fridays and ask community members to help us provide for people in our community in need. Here is what you should do: go to Target or an art supply store and purchase scissors, construction paper, glue sticks, markers , crayons, clay or other craft and art supplies. and join us for a drink at the Marination Ma Kai. If you do not have time to shop, we will be set up to accept cash or check donations too.

Come join your West Seattle Rotary for a drink and to hang out and help people in our community become more prepared.

Past First Friday events:
October First Friday: 18 pounds of food for West Seattle Food Bank
November First Friday: 31 Coats and two bags of Gloves/ Scarves
December First Friday: first aid kits, batteries, flashlights
