Overlake Medical Center and Snoqualmie Valley Hospital | Cartoon for Nov. 19
Community Events, November 2014
Kirkland is such a great place to live and work. Not only are the people interesting and great to be around, they generously step up to meet the needs of neighbors. The Thanksgiving Kirkland Nourishing Network appeal was larger than any of the past Thanksgiving projects to help needy elementary school children and their families. Generous “Kirkland Angels” filled all 180 food box requests in six days. Wow!

They have been adjusting to new teachers and the expectations set for them. While some kids look forward to a new, challenging class schedule; others may become overwhelmed. These are the students that the LINKS Program offers extra support.
