The Angel Program was started at Issaquah Valley Elementary to provide a helping hand to students who need extra support with clothing and shoes. The program is strictly confidential, both sponsors (known as “Angels”) and students remain anonymous. Angel sponsors make a huge difference in the lives of individual students within our IVE community.
Anyone can become an Angel sponsor or choose or donate.
How you can help:
Sponsoring a child – You will be matched with a child for the school year. You will provide a few outfits, shoes and coats in the fall and the spring. We ask that all items be new and not previously owned. Once you have been paired with a child, you will be sent details about your child like gender, clothing and shoe size. The estimated cost is $100-$200 twice a year.
Sponsor together – You may choose to partner with a friend in sponsoring a child, thus sharing the cost. There are also opportunities to sponsor more than one child.
New item donations/Gift Cards – You can also purchase and donate from a list of needed items, and an Angel coordinator will distribute the items amongst the children in the program. Or if shopping isn’t your thing, local area gift cards are always a great option. We recommend gift cards to Target, Fred Meyer, Old Navy, etc.
Cash Donations – You can also make a cash donation to the Angel Program. The funds will go to a 'restricted fund account' that will be used solely for the purpose of our Angel childrens' needs. These donations are fully tax deductible and a tax receipt will be provided. Click here to make a cash donation.
How to enroll:
To enroll your child/children in the program, please fill out a form for each child, which is available for downloading from the blue box above. Or you can obtain a form from the front office or in the form racks in the main school entrance across from the office.
