Yesterday, a Seattle Times reporter visited the 4th grade staff of The Villa Times. The story, to appear in next Sunday’s paper (February 6th), is focused on The Seattle Times Fund for the Needy. Villa Academy students are part of this piece because of their generous donation of all newspaper proceeds!
The Fund For The Needy has helped support some of the most vulnerable members of the community, including children, families and seniors, through non-profit organizations specializing in preventative and remedial services for families and individuals at risk.
When The Villa Times contribution was donated, a copy of the December issue featuring a front page story titled “We Can Change the Word with Kindness” by Kate, was included. Reporters interviewed and photographed Kate about her story and her motivation for the article.
Kate’s story and the charitable donation by The Villa Times staff is representative of Villa Academy’s spirit of service. We are very proud of these young writers/editors!!
