If you have shopped at the westside Olympia Haggen lately, you may have been asked in the checkout line if you would like to make a donation to support students in the Olympia School District.

This vague question has led to confusion about what these donations would support.

The Olympia School District Education Foundation (OSDEF) would like you to know that any donations made at Haggen between now and March 18 will directly benefit the Principal’s Emergency Fund, Teaching & Learning Grants, and Mental Health Initiative.

Now through March 18, Haggen is running its annual Building Brighter Futures Together campaign, which last year benefited the Foundation — and its mission to empower every Olympia School District student — to the tune of $13,000.
