Together! is a local non-profit that partners with Tumwater School District. Many of their staff work in schools across the district to support families faced with homelessness, food insecurity, etc. School counselors are able to connect families directly with a caseworker to begin the process of getting support. At East Olympia Elementary we are beyond lucky to have Courtney Prothero as our case manager.
Thurston County Food Bank provides free food to people in need in the Lacey/Olympia/Tumwater area. We are fortunate to have the FORKids program in our schools. This program provides students with weekend foodbags to provide food on the days we are not in school.
