Do You Love to Play Golf?
This week, we’re looking forward to our Heathman Helping Hands Charity Golf Tournament at Tri Mountain Golf Course. We’re using our first annual tournament to help raise money for the Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools.
We’ll kick off the shotgun start tournament at 9:00 this Thursday, September 14. Bring your foursome, or make new contacts as we match you with other single players. Join colleagues and friends for what’s sure to be a fun day on the course. Want to know more? Get all the details about and sign up for the tournament here.
Who We’re Helping
Every year, the Foundation assists hundreds of families so that their children can have a fully rounded experience in school. With their mentoring, early learning initiatives, and scholarships, they help students to get the most out of their education.
All that is great to have, but the Foundation then takes the work a step further. Far too often, children are unable to participate in sports, extracurricular activities, field trips and other school experiences that require their families to pay extra fees. With the funds they raise, the Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools helps these parents to offset and cover the costs so that their children can participate with the rest of their classmates.
They also ensure children in Vancouver Public Schools have proper clothing to attend school in comfort and dignity. Sometimes that’s because of the families finances, and they’ll assist with Goodwill vouchers. Other times the problem might be a child who has an accident. They keep new undergarments and gently-used clothing on hand at all their schools. This helps the children to stay in the learning environment with minimal interruption, embarrassment, or inconvenience.
