Thanks to the Seattle Park District, Seattle Parks and Recreation is distributing $400,000 worth of scholarships to individuals and families for our programs and activities. We recently heard from a community center user about the impact of the scholarship program:
“I am a mother of four children living in a single income household. For the last 10 years we have consistently used the community centers and public pools. As my family has grown and things have become more expensive it has been harder to take part in all the wonderful and enriching classes that are offered through these centers. This spring I was made aware that my family would qualify for financial help. I feel so lucky that my family will get to continue partaking in all the wonderful things that are offered in these centers. Preschool and the many classes help to provide a well-rounded childhood experience, which is so important!” -A Loyal Heights resident
