Beginning September 14th, the Anacortes School District will be delivering Grab-n-Go meals to families who want to receive school meals. Vans will make stops throughout the area where students/parents will be able to pick up breakfasts and lunches. Help us assess your needs by filling out this short survey. We will deliver 2 days a week to determined locations, providing multiple days worth of meals each delivery. An evening pickup site at the Anacortes High School will also be available. In order to receive school meals, your child must be registered in the Anacortes School District for the 2020-21 school year. Names will be recorded at the time meals are taken, and student Mealtime accounts will be charged as applicable. Parents will be allowed to pick up meals for their students.
A note from Kirk Kennedy & Sylvia Cooper:
Exciting news for people with disabilities in Anacortes, their family & friends and those serving this community.
Please consider attending this information meeting of Anacortes’ newly forming ACAC committee, whose mission is, “To improve the quality of life for residents and visitors with disabilities by eliminating or modifying barriers burdening them.” To be effective, our ACAC needs input from people with a wide range of disabilities and those who support people with disabilities (spouses, caregivers, professionals, etc.).

The Anacortes Family Center desperately needs two sofa beds. They will make arrangements, if necessary, to pick them up from your home.

Please send all checks for the Motel Voucher Program directly to the Anacortes Family Center [1011 27th St, Anacortes WA 98221] with the annotation, “Motel Voucher Program’).
The Anacortes Family Center has been very successful in taking on the role as the clearing house for motel voucher requests to the community, and now that the program is so well-established, the Anacortes Community Health Council no longer needs to be the clearing house for receiving funds this program.
Thanks to all the churches and others who have helped make the consolidated motel voucher program a great success. No other city in Skagit County (nor Whatcom County, to my knowledge) has a program like this, and the Health Council takes great pride in its role in helping ensure that we, as a community, can provide the most assistance to the most needy in the most efficient way.
And thanks to the staff at the Anacortes Family Center for receiving all the calls from those seeking assistance and for their oversight of the program. As we all know, helping someone who is in a time of crisis is often a time-consuming but rewarding effort, and we thank the Family Center for the long hours they contribute to the program.
