A Message from Patti-Skelton McGougan
YES Executive Director

I hope you had a relaxing summer and enjoyed time with your family and friends. At Youth Eastside Services, we've been plugging away, helping local youth through our outreach and counseling services.

Sadly, the summer was anything but relaxing. We grieve with the families who lost their teenagers to a heroin overdose and a violent physical altercation. Every day, our counselors work with kids who are struggling, some to the point they believe that taking their life is the only way.

As you prepare your kids to go back to school, we're making sure that all kids are healthy and ready to learn. Please consider helping us by adding a donation to YES to your back-to-school budget. Thank you for your support.

Volunteers lighten our load
Thank you to the volunteers from Clarisonic, who spent a day in June at YES assembling fun kits for our Summer Explorers program and making thank you calls to donors. We truly appreciate this extra help on projects we don't have the staff capacity to do efficiently.

If your company is looking for group volunteer opportunities, please email or call 425.586.2326.

A nest egg for YES

Thank you to the Giving Chicks, a Kirkland-based group of philanthropic women (and a few "roosters")for choosing YES as its charity of the month for May. The $1000 donation will go toward our Summer Explorers program, which provides fun and therapeutic experiences for youth ages 10 to 14.

If your group has a similar monthly giving opportunity, please email or call 425.582.2326.
