A Custom Glassybaby made just for St. Francis: Community
This year's custom glassybaby votive is navy blue with a silver overlay. The navy blue blends beautifully with the silver representing the many ways our community comes together to support our children and our school. In some of the limited edition votives, the silver reacts with the blue to create a bronze tint, reminding all of us of the beautiful unpredictability of childhood.
These truly are limited edition and will not be available again. Purchase your custom, limited edition St. Francis glassybaby, “community,” for $100 each now through November 8th and support our ability to provide a St. Francis education to all students. Your glassybaby(s) will be available to pick up the week of December 10th, just in time for Christmas! To order your limited edition glassybaby: communityvotives.maxgiving.com.

United Way of King County
You are now able to give to St. Francis school through your United Way of King County workplace giving program! The United Way workplace campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you're part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.
Contact your workplace United Way coordinators to find out when your company will be starting their campaign. Once it has begun, all you will need to do is write-in St. Francis of Assisi School, Burien, Washington, on your donation form for the organization you want to give to, how much you are donating (or the percentage of your donation to us), and the United Way will take care of getting your donation to us. Pretty easy! The funds you donate through this program will go to our Annual School Campaign for the school year we are in.
If your workplace does not currently participate in the United Way Workplace Giving program, please contact your local United Way office for details, or go online to United Way - Get Involved & Ways To Give, if you are interested in having your company participate.
