Seahawk Kam Chancellor Gives Backpacks | Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission

October 21, 2016

On Friday, August 19, 2016, our Youth Services team at Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission distributed backpacks to 500 high-risk students on behalf of Seattle Seahawks Safety Kam Chancellor.

Kam Chancellor and his foundation, Kam Cares, donated $5,000 toward backpacks and school supplies for children facing economic hardships in the Seattle area. These backpacks included 13 required items which are difficult for kids from low-income families to afford.

“Parents and children really rely on this! It’s the last day of summer camp, so we like to send our students off with a backpack. When the school year starts, they’re ready to go,” says John Reid, Director of Youth Services.

Kids loved their brand new backpacks stuffed with school supplies, snacks, and hygiene kits donated by our generous sponsors. After a BBQ lunch, they hung out in the gym and played in bouncy houses!

Special thanks to the Kam Cares Foundation, under the leadership of “Bam Bam Kam,” for giving local students essential tools for academic success! We also thank our many other generous sponsors: Bunzel, Coeur d’Alene Bakery, JP Work, MORELove Project, Pop Gourmet, Port Logistics, and Shasta Beverages.
