We’ve been busy! We launched our Roadmap to Recovery series this spring, began helping the region navigate the digital divide, and have kept you up to date on how our community has come together during this uncertain time.

School is about to start and we’re laser focused on our Stuff the Bus collaboration with Communities In Schools of Seattle. The deadline for donations is August 21. Have you checked out our Amazon wishlist? Be a part of this community movement, one webcam, one flash drive, one student at a time. makes it easy for you and your colleagues to get involved in our city. We’re happy to share a more detailed recap of our efforts below.

In solidarity,
The Team

P.S. Boy it’s warm in here… the weather has shown us it has quite the personality lately, did you catch the lightning?

The Stuff the Bus supply drive ends Friday! Help relieve the costly burden of online learning placed on teachers and families due to the pandemic. Specific items have been identified as most needed moving into the 2020-2021 school year. From wireless mice for their laptops, to headphones that aid in virtual learning, to flash drives that store their school work, every item you donate prepares youth to be successful in school and in life. You can donate funds or send specific items from a curated Amazon wish list on our greenlight project page.

This spring we launched our virtual Roadmap to Recovery events: conversations with local nonprofit leaders who shared how the covid crisis was affecting their sectors. You can watch recordings and read recaps of these conversations on our blog.

COMING SOON – We’re excited to bring you another series of Roadmap to Recovery lunch and learns. We’re keeping the format the same — quick, insightful conversations on Thursdays, 12:00-12:30pm. We’ll go deeper on the same topics (environmental sustainability, transportation infrastructure, homelessness, education, and the arts) by talking to local government and public sector leaders and practitioners. As always, we’ll ask speakers to share how you can tangibly contribute to the causes you care about — stay tuned!

We kicked off April supporting Seattle Public Schools families through the Family Tech Support Center (FTSC). As the 2019-2020 school year came to a close and we wound down operations of the FTSC, we shared insights from the data volunteers gathered as they helped families navigate technology needs for remote learning. We look forward to continuing to partner with Seattle Public Schools and other stakeholders as the 2020-2021 school year gets underway — stay tuned!
