Need help with back to school expenses? Plus FREE dental exam for adults!

This post is for those who are struggling financially and could use some extra help getting some school supplies for their children. Don't need help? Maybe you can donate some freebies or stockpile!
This is a local organization, but be sure to check your local food bank to see what they have to offer. 
Just google your city + food bank and see where your food bank is in your area!

The Issaquah Food Bank is hosting a program called Tools 4 School offering back packs and school supplies for children entering Kindergarten through the 12th grade.
Read information below:

Tools for Schools 2014

Welcome to the Tools 4 School Program! We are proud to bring this program to kids in the Issaquah School District who are in need of a little extra assistance. The goal of this program is to provide school supplies and backpacks to children so they can start the 2014 school year off right.
The Tools 4 School Program is for children grades kindergarten-12th. Participants must attend school in the Issaquah School District

Procedures/Program Steps:
1. Submit your registration form to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank before July 31. Late registrations will be put on a waiting list.
2. We check the Issaquah School District enrollment records, so there is no need to get a letter from your school.
3. After registering, we will give you a time to pick up your backpacks. The pickup day is Saturday, August 9 from 10am-3pm at Eastridge Church (24205 SE Issaquah-Fall City Rd, Issaquah, WA 98029). Your time slot is a random lottery. You may come to Eastridge Church at any time that day to attend the Health and Wellness Fair (see back for more info), but you will not be able to pick up your backpacks before your scheduled time.
If you have questions, call 425-392-4123.

    Free Dental Appointment

    Do you need a free adult dental appointment *
    Eastridge Church, as a part of the Tools 4 Schools Backpack Program, is hosting a Health and Wellness Fair from 10am-3pm on August 9. You are welcome to check out the booths and take advantage of the services they will offer, such as free hair trims, before or after your assigned backpack pick up time. There will be fun activities for kids of all ages. There will be a dental van to serve adults at the Health and Wellness Fair. To sign up, circle the “Y” on the bottom of the registration form and indicate how many appointments you need. The van will only be able to accommodate 12 appointments, so if more than 12 people sign up, we will have a random lottery to assign appointments. Once we have our 12 appointments assigned to people, we will try to work out a schedule that is compatible with everyone’s backpack pick up times. We will also maintain a waiting list we will pull from if people don’t make it to their scheduled appointments.
