    New! Free food pantry free food pantry

    We wanted to send a quick note about the new Free Food Pantry that is up at Rainier View Elementary School. It located at the top of steps by the front door.
    We hope this can give additional support to the school community in this time.
    Please feel free to stop by anytime and take what you need. It is open 24 hours a day!
    Likewise, if you have extra to share, feel free to stop by anytime and add things to the food pantry.  We have a group of families/parents that are stocking it on weekdays (which seem to be the highest use times) and the weekend, but welcome others dropping by anytime.
    Ideas for the pantry: Food (basic food staples, culturally relevant foods, snacks for kids), hygiene supplies, school supplies, toiletries
    We are grateful for this opportunity to care for one another in this time!  
    We also hope to hear from you and the Rainier View community about what the needs are, so we can work together to keep the pantry stocked with items that are needed/desired in the RV community.  I have included a picture here, but please feel free to write items of need on the side of the pantry as well.
    Please feel free to reach out anytime with questions or concerns. 
    As Ms. Ogden, my son's teacher often says, "Take care of each other, I hope we can be together soon!"


    MAY 19, 2020 gofundme update

    We are deeply grateful to share that last week we gave the first round of checks and gift cards to 44 families using the $21,340 that you generously donated. This amount exceeded our original expectations and we couldn't have done it with you! 

    That said, the need is still great. We have requests for over $36,000 to date and continue to look for funding so we can fully support every family requesting support in our community. That is why we are raising our goal and extending the fundraiser for as long as there is a need. Please continue to give if you can, and share this GoFundMe with as many family and friends as you can think of!

    In the meantime, know that the community at Rainier View Elementary School continues to care for each other in powerful ways. Each week our team hands out over 70 bags of groceries in partnership with the Rainier Valley Food Bank and we have a food pantry that is stocked every day for families in need.

    On behalf of all our families at Rainier View, thank you for giving so generously. You make a huge difference with your gifts.

    So very grateful,

    Sarena
