Thank You!

 

Thank you to everyone who supported KYFS through our 2016 Holiday Campaign!

Because you stood with the youth and families of South King County, you made stories like this possible: 

Last month, I had a chance to work with one of our kindergarten students for the first time. Ibrahim comes to the community center on a regular basis, but like many of our younger participants, he just wants to play. However, one day he came in and was very excited, because he had received a medal from school for reading 100 books!

Typically, Ibrahim never shows a desire to read, but on this day he asked multiple times if I could read with him. He picked “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” This particular books is very popular with our kindergarten kids. As he began to read, I realized that he is a good reader, but could definitely benefit from more one on one reading time. What made this moment a success was that I got to see the spark in his eyes as we spent time reading together. I hope that spark never goes away.

 

Thank you, Kent Youth and Family Services
