Annual School Supply Drive!

PSONS Annual School Supply Drive
Benefiting Four Heroes Elementary School Lakewood, WA
(Formerly Oakwood Elementary School)

It is that time of year again where PSONS members reach deep into their hearts and pockets to help raise money and supplies for a very deserving school. Four Heroes Elementary School in Lakewood, WA is a school that meets the needs of a diverse and needy population of students. In the 2015 academic year Four Heroes moved into a brand new building and joined a third school with the anticipated student body expected to be near 1000.  Your generous support in the 2015-2016 academic year provided resources and supplies that kept them going into Spring.  This year our goal is 50  backpacks and as many of the supplies listed below as we can collect.  We have also elected to forgo the backpack stuffing and just provide the supplies to the school.  They are so happy to receive what we provide and can pack and distribute themselves as needed.  We will also be happy to accept donations of cash or check.  Make checks payable to PSONS.  As always thank you for your continued generous support of the charitable works accomplished by PSONS.
