Employees from Kent’s city government donated dozens of boxes of school supplies, backpacks, and a check for $1,040 to Kent-Meridian High School as part of a back-to-school drive. The drive was led by Kent’s Giving Campaign Committee.
Kent-Meridian was selected because high schools are often left out of supply drives despite having so many students in need of the aid.
“I am so proud of our city employees who came together and collected needed school supplies for KM students. I was happy to help deliver backpacks, notebooks, calculators and other supplies, along with a check to buy whatever else is needed,” said Mayor Dana Ralph. “As students return to school, it is important they have the supplies they need to make their year successful.”
