Thank you to Federal Way Public Schools’ staff member Laveda Nichols who organized and ran the Coats for Kids Fundraiser for over 14 years!

Laveda initiated an annual “garage sale” where staff donate items, and all proceeds go towards buying coats to keep our scholars warm.

The sale usually brings in about $1,200 to $1,400 each year. However, this year was an all-time record of $2,000!

Laveda purchases the coats, then delivers them to schools for students in need.

Laveda, we appreciate your support to keep our scholars warm and ready to learn! This helps them thrive and be confident, responsible individuals, part of our strategic plan Goal 2 efforts.
