We are so very thrilled to work with our schools using all necessary COVID protocols this fall to return to in-school support groups for the 2021/2022 school year. Due to the stress of the pandemic as well as absence of klatch support in the past year for many students, klatch attendance has soared, going from supporting 20-50 students a week online to 350+ in our first week back on school campuses. Along with increasing attendance (which means more pizza), we are in need of updated resources, training and new volunteers. In addition to those needs, we will also be starting in a brand new school as well (Gravity Learning Center, Olympia)! This will put us in 15 public high schools and 1 middle school in Thurston County for the school year of 2021-2022.
This is where you come in. For the first time ever we will be seeking klatch specific sponsorships where your money goes directly towards volunteer and staff training, much needed resources and of course PIZZA for individual klatches at individual schools! Sponsors of a certain klatch will be recognized for the duration of your sponsorship both on our website, social media and in all our annual newsletters. That means that our students as well as our community will know that your support is what made that very group possible!
Here are our current available klatch sponsorship levels:
Whether or not sponsorship is right for you, thank you for reading more about Pizza Klatch and for your interest in supporting the LGBTQ+ youth of Thurston County. Together we can work towards a school system that will be a positive and supportive space where LGBTQ+ youth are free to learn without violence, harassment, discrimination, suicidal ideation or self-harm.
