Fund drive keeps giving to island | Letters | Oct. 16

By now Bainbridge Islanders have received that important One Call For All Red Envelope in their mailboxes. This envelope is an example of what makes living here so special: the community pulling together to support the nonprofit organizations on our island.

These organizations help to meet the needs of our community in so many ways, and they rely upon our donations to continue to do so.

Island Cooperative Preschool is an example of a nonprofit that is benefited by the One Call For All fund drive. Our school has been teaching children and parents for almost 40 years.

The funds we receive through One Call For All support our scholarship program. We have seen a rise in need for scholarships in the past two years, and we are so thankful we have OCFA to help meet this need.

Our school’s mission is to nurture, involve and inspire children and parents in the exploration of learning. For nearly 50 years, islanders have been involved in nurturing our nonprofit community through One Call For All. Thank you for your continuing support.
