The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools is once again the recipient of an $8,500 donation from the Heathman Lodge Helping Hands Charity Golf Tournament. This donation will serve the crucial needs of students within VPS starting with the students who need it the most.
According to Executive Director for The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools, Nada Wheelock, “Almost half of the students in Vancouver Public Schools are impacted by poverty and they are present in all 37 Vancouver schools and programs. Many students face significant challenges in their daily lives. We are grateful to The Heathman Lodge Helping Hands employees, volunteers, and supporters. Their generosity will help us close the opportunity gap in Vancouver. We are so appreciative of this gift supporting students in our community.”
Erin Stephanek with The Heathman Lodge Helping Hands said, “We are very excited to support students through the Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools. We understand that to be successful in school, students may need additional support.”
The 2019 Heathman Lodge Helping Hands 3rd Annual Golf Tournament to support Vancouver Public Schools is scheduled for August 20, 2019, at Camas Meadow’s.
