NWLife Foundation


Northwest Life Foundation was born one summer from a desire to help the 16,000 kids in the Kent/Renton, WA area who receive a free breakfast and lunch during the school year, but do not have this opportunity in the summer. Our first program, PB&J provided loaves of bread and kid-friendly groceries to kids all summer long. It is now in its fifth season - providing groceries, and a hot meal to families in need every single week. From there, we have expanded to add several other events and areas of service. We provide:

New shoes for school-aged children in the spring.

Backpacks and school supplies each summer.

Turkeys and Thanksgiving groceries in November .

Toys and gifts for kids at Christmas.

We work with local schools to mentor at-risk students.

We need your support:

For $30, you can provide a brand new pair of shoes to a student.

For just $15, you can provide a brand new backpack full of paper, pencils, scissors, crayons, notebooks, a glue stick, eraser, ruler and more.

For just $15 you can provide a family with a turkey and groceries for Thanksgiving.

For just $20 you can provide a child with a brand new, wrapped toy at Christmas.

We accept donations and partner with other organizations to acquire supplies and resources. We have also developed gift-matching relationships with several companies. Here are a few of the companies who match employee donations:
