Alameda Education Foundation

Dear Editor,

January was a very busy month for the Alameda Education Foundation (AEF) as we made 23 Adopt A Classroom (AAC) presentations to Alameda public school teachers on behalf of our generous community. I would like to thank the following donors: VF Outdoor; Park Street Business Association Shop For Our Schools: Alameda Natural Grocery, Artistic Home Studio & Boutique, Daisy's, Julie's Coffee & Tea Garden, Tucker's Ice Cream, Bead Inspirations, Park Jewelers and We Are Hair; the Archer family; Odd Fellows Lodge #3 Alameda; CH2M Hill Foundation on behalf of employee Heather Abrams; Deutsche Bank on behalf of the Samford family; Barbara Meyer; the Fenelon-Schoenrock family; and state Senator Don Perata.

Each recipient received a $500 gift card to support learning opportunities for his/her classroom. Teachers were adopted at the following schools: Alameda High, Earhart, Edison, Encinal, Franklin, Island, Haight, Lum, Maya Lin, Otis, Paden, Ruby Bridges and Wood. As of January, $69,500 has been distributed to 139 teachers this year! Donations to the program are being accepted through March 4 at http://www.AlamedaEducation.org.

Sincerely,

Kathleen C. Woulfe
