RET Cares: Backpack Drive - Northwest Center Kids

Washington state  is the birthplace of inclusive education. Northwest Center  was founded by four Seattle moms to provide a place for kids of all abilities to learn. The founders went on to write House Bill 90 – Education for All , the first law in the nation to grant kids with disabilities access to public schools. This led directly to nationwide disability rights laws.

Northwest Center, a local non-profit organization, has a variety of programs where people of all abilities can learn and thrive. Their Early Learning Program  for kids provides an inclusive environment in which all families receive individualized programs of education, advocacy, therapy and family support that nurture the development of children with and without disabilities. 

RET Physical Therapy & Healthcare Specialists  shares the organization’s dedication to caring for our communities, which are enriched by diversity. We have chosen to partner with Northwest Center to provide backpacks filled with school supplies for kids in their Early Learning Program who are starting elementary school this fall. 

Our goal is to raise $3000 to help purchase the requested school supplies. RET will donate the backpacks, but we need your help to collect the supplies to fill them! 

Each of RET's clinics  are collecting specific school supplies from Northwest Center's list, but we wanted to give busy people another way to donate to the drive: via this GoFundMe. Your tax deductible donation will make a difference in the lives of these students and give them the tools they need for success in the classroom. Thank you for opening your heart to this cause!

With gratitude,

The team at RET Physical Therapy & Healthcare Specialists

NOTE: This fundraiser will run through July 7, 2022.
