Have you heard about our service project this winter? Starting in November our school is running a fundraiser for a local program called Real Rent Duwamish, a grassroots organization that directs funds to the Duwamish Tribe. PRLC Preschool is located on the ancestral lands of the First People of Seattle, and part of recognizing their integral role in our lives is to support their advocacy and stewardship efforts.

You can participate in our fundraiser using the following steps:

  1. Visit the Real Rent Duwamish website and click “Pay Rent” to set up recurring rent or a one-time contribution
  2. Sign the Petition for Federal Recognition – Did you know that the Duwamish Tribe has been denied the rights they were promised via treaty for over a century? Joining their fight for recognition is one way we can support restitution in this area
  3. Fill out a PRLC Preschool Pledge Form to help us track community participation! We’ll place a leaf on the tree in our lobby to represent each person who participates in the drive in any way. You can check our progress on the tree in our school entryway!
  4. Share this project with friends and family!
