Orcas Montessori thanks United Way

The Orcas Montessori School would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to the United Way!

The United Way’s generous grant helped us to continue our crucial tuition assistance program during the 2009-2010 school year. The benefits of a quality preschool program are many yet the costs associated with offering such an experience to the children of Orcas Island continue to rise. Without the support of the United Way and the caring community members who make giving to this organization a yearly act of generosity, programs like ours would be unable to meet the needs of our island families. An investment in the most formative years of our children’s lives is an investment in the future strength and health of our island.

The United Way’s support of our preschools and daycare programs is an example of its dedication to our community. This year a United Way grant to the Orcas Family Health Center will make possible a series of free well child check ups held at our local preschools. We are most appreciative of this important service and we kindly ask the members of our island community to support the United Way in all its valuable efforts.
