Milk Money Campaign – 2013

Milk Money will be kicking-off its third year at the Northshore Schools Foundation luncheon on March 28.  With an emphasis on funding services for McKinney Vento students and programs that support health initiatives, Milk Money has benefitted hundreds of disadvantaged students district-wide.

The Milk Money Project is a grassroots fundraising campaign started by three Northshore moms that places milk bottles in local businesses to collect spare change during the month of May.  What three local moms started, is now a revolution engaging dozens of volunteers, and hundreds of local businesses and thousands of community members.   More than $13,000 has been raised since the program’s inception in 2011.

We are Udderly Grateful to:

  • The Windermere Foundation, who stepped up to provide a $2500 matching grant in 2012 and a $3000 matching grant in 2013.
  • The 2012 anonymous donor who ensured that we could maximize the Windermere Foundation’s match.
  • Denise’s Place and Banner Bank Woodinville who have continued to keep the bottles at their cash registers all year long, providing more than $1000 additional to the cause!
  • And last but not least, program co-founders Sara Hayashi, Davina Williams Duerr and April Remfrey

All proceeds collected support the Northshore Schools Foundation’s Advanced & Disadvantaged Learners Initiative, funding such programs as:

McKinney Vento Services that support the more than 180 identified homeless students in our district.

Natural Leader Program: parent outreach to families who are not connected to school.

Hang Time: an afterschool program the provides homework help, mentors, physical activity and healthy snacks at Kenmore, Northshore and Skyview Junior Highs.

Healthy Youth Survey which provides the district with invaluable information about the health and risk factors of our youth in grades 6,8,10 & 12.

Milk bottles with our special label will be available to local business owners starting March 28th, to place at cash registers, on counters or in offices to collect spare change in support of the cause.  The campaign officially ends May 31.
