How we spent our summer stay-cation

Community engagement in fundamental to Best Starts for Kids. That’s why this summer we brought tables, chairs, a tent, and a whole bunch of craft supplies to movie nights, festivals, and back to school events across King County. Over 1,500 people stopped by the Best Starts for Kids booth to talk, share ideas, pose in our photo booth, and build relationships!

As summer comes to a close, we want to thank the kids, parents, and community members who joined us for the fun!

 

What’s next?

We’re winding up for several pre-natal to 5 funding opportunities and we want to hear from you! Find us online and in the community to ask questions, share ideas, and learn more about Best Starts’ investments in babies, young children, and their parents or caregivers.
