What We Do

At the July Back-to-School event, each child receives five new outfits, socks, and underwear (girls get bras), new shoes, a new backpack and school supplies. Bellevue Police and Fire Departments attend to pass out bike helmets and develop positive relationships with kids and families.   Many volunteers plan, organize, and execute this event.

All needs are vetted by Bellevue Public School counselors and social workers.  No one without proper vetting is admitted to the event. School counselors have the vetted families pre-register beginning in April to attend this event. The 2022 event included  400 kids from 135 families.

Thanksgiving Dinner -Families receive groceries to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, including a turkey and pie.

Christmas Gifts and Dinner - Gift tags are prepared using the child’s wish list. Tags are taken by individuals, community
organizations, houses of faith and businesses. Gifts are purchased and returned to Bellevue Together and prepared for families to pick up.  Each child receives two gifts: one item of clothing and one fun thing, toy, or gift card. New pillows and pillowcases made by many volunteers are provided to all family members.  Throws or quilts and games also are included for each family.  Groceries  to help during the long school vacation are also provided.
