From Immaculate Conception -- Everet

A family lost their home in a recent natural disaster. InvestED funds helped pay transportation costs for two girls to go to family in western Washington where they were able to attend a private school. The girls were warmly welcomed by the parish and school communities. However, one of them was very homesick and returned to their hometown, while her sister enjoyed it so much that she stayed for the duration of the school year, for she felt the love of a whole community. She was asked to keep in touch with the school when she returned home. There were many tears on the last day of school when she said her final goodbyes.
