WEA Children's Fund
Do you know students whose families can't afford to buy a warm coat, a new pair of boots or basic school supplies? The WEA Children's Fund can help! The Children's Fund reimburses WEA members who buy items for underprivileged students. Prior approval is required for reimbursement. Approved requests will be reimbursed provided receipts are submitted within 30 days of your approval and adhere to the guidelines. The goal of the WEA Children's Fund is to help meet the modest and immediate needs of students encountered by WEA members in their daily workplaces. The intent is to ensure that the physical, social and emotional needs of students do not stand in the way of success within the school setting.
MEA also encourages members to support the WEA Children’s Fund. For example, if you are shopping at Amazon.com or Fred Meyer, some of your dollars can be sent to the Children's Fund at no extra charge to you. For Amazon purchases, please use Amazon Smile and select WEA Children's Fund as your charity; the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. At Fred Meyer, use Community Rewards to select WEA Children's Fund as your organization to support. Fred Meyer will make a donation to the Children's Fund based on the total purchase amount from supporters.
