This year Test Drive 4 Kids program which will run from 1st September till October 31st, & we are working along with our 5 partners:
Every car sold provides opportunities for at-risk children!!
Every time a car is sold we will make a donation to above organizations.
With the increase in chronically homeless families, this project is even more important as we work to strengthen and broaden supportive services to meet the current needs of homeless families. These non-profits are committed to providing opportunities for transformation and the hope that comes with that to break the cycle of homelessness. Their programs are strengths-based and client-driven which require that families learn the skills and do the work to move beyond crisis and trauma. We are working with them for last 4 years.
Foundation for Edmonds School District:
The Nourishing Network started as a weekend meals program to feed the homeless children over the weekend. What started as weekends, has quickly blossomed into a series of meals programs
The FESD has our own cargo delivery van and uses it to distribute weekend meal kits weekly. They also use the van to pick up food from food drives and fresh produce from our program partners.
This past school year, Nourishing Network program piloted a pop-up pantry at College Place and Beverly Elementary Schools. This was incredibly successful. Pop-ups serve families who will not access traditional food banks and are choosing to not feed their children.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County:
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County has 24 Clubs and approximately 25,000 members ages 5 - 18 and is the 2nd largest Boys & Girls Club organization in the country. Yearly membership to the Boys & Girls Club costs $30 per year. The Boys & Girls Club runs programs that lead to three priority outcomes of Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Good Character & Citizenship
The partnership between the Boys & Girls Club and Campbell Auto Group has been a great one with donations from Campbell supporting the Kids Cafe food program at the Boys & Girls Club. In 2018 the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County served approximately 920,000 meals and snacks for kids.
Vision House provides various housing solutions, including transitional housing, support services (case management, counseling and child care), and diversion services to assist homeless and at-risk families as they rebuild their lives. They provide all of this within a holistic program, working to combat the ever-demanding contemporary problem of homeless in our community. Their mission is to work with homeless families to promote positive transformation in the lives of each family member.

In addition to our housing apartments, they also operate two Children’s Village Child Care centers in Shoreline and Renton, Washington.
