The Foundation for Edmonds School District, in partnership with Calvary Fellowship and the Mountlake Terrace Community Foundation, has received a $40,000 grant from the City of Mountlake Terrace.
Funding through the CARES Act will help residents impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents of Mountlake Terrace can receive financial support to pay unmet bills such as child-care costs, utilities, car repairs, or medical bills. The grant will also cover the cost of delivering meals to families in need through home deliveries, pop-up pantries, weekend meal kits and pantry boxes.
The foundation anticipates that the funding will help almost 1,100 families with meal delivery and, alongside its partners, plans to deliver approximately 30,000 in financial support.
"We thank the City of Mountlake Terrace for their dedication to families in the Mountlake Terrace community," said Deborah Brandi, Foundation for Edmonds School District executive director. "We look forward to helping to stabilize families who are in crisis during the COVID pandemic."
Families with children in the Edmonds School District can receive meal delivery and financial assistance by contacting the district's family support department. Families who do not have children in the school district, and would still like to receive financial support, can contact either Calvary Fellowship or the Mountlake Terrace Community Foundation.
