About Communities in Schools Kent:  Support students in the Kent School District by donating much needed school supplies to Fill The Bus 2013 - The Communities in Schools of Kent School Supply Drive! Over 450,000 students in the Kent School District are low-income; our goal is to send as many of those students as we can back to school with basic school supplies they otherwise couldn't affortd.  For the month of August, school supplies will be collected at specific drop off locations all over Kent and Covington, culminating in Fill The Bus 2013 at Showare Center from 7:30 AM to 1:00 PM on August 24th.  Cash and check will also be accepted on that day for school supplies. 

About KLC South Sudan Community Restoration Program: This program was formed after a large group of South Sudanese families joined Kent Lutheran Church bringing wit them stories of war, relocation, and living as refugees.  Now in the wake of South Sudan's independence, people from KLC and the Ken community have combined effors to help.  Near constant war since 198 has left South Sudan's infrastructure in ruins.  While refugees could technocally return, they have no jobs, homes, clean water sources, or schools for their children to attain any quality of life.  This proram, focused on a community in the Upper White Nile Region of South Sudan, has a mltiyear plan to make repatriation possible for those who which to return, and to improve the quality of life for those who chose to remain.

Why a Fun Run? Both SSCRP and CISK rely on funding from private contributions and supporting partners to do important work in Kent and around the world.  Your participation will have a long-term impact on our community and our world!  Thank you!
