“HomeStreet is committed to supporting the needs of our local communities,” said Allison Gilham, manager of the Lynnwood bank branch. “These two organizations make a tremendous difference for Snohomish County children and their families.”
The YWCA of Seattle, King and Snohomish Counties has operated the Pathways for Women family shelter in Lynnwood for nearly 18 years and has operated transitional housing properties in Snohomish County for nearly 30 years. YWCA’s Lynnwood programs include an emergency shelter for women and children and transitional housing for homeless families who want to rebuild their lives.
“This generous gift from HomeStreet Bank will make it possible for the YWCA to continue providing essential shelter and services to women and families in our community who might otherwise be homeless,” said Mary Anne Dillion, Senior Regional Director, YWCA.
Since 1984, Clothes For Kids has helped to enhance the learning environment by meeting the clothing needs of low-income children in grades K-12 in Snohomish County. The organization provides free fall and spring clothing for families in a retail store environment. During the last school year they provided 4,044 wardrobes to children in the Snohomish region.
“HomeStreet Bank has been an amazing community partner helping Clothes For Kids to meet the clothing needs of students throughout Snohomish County,” said Joy Ingram, Clothes for Kids Development Director.
