We would like to congratulate the 2017 Larry Saunders Service Award Winner Diane Formoso of Caring For Kids!
Caring for Kids, an all-volunteer organization, started forty-three years ago with a little clothing bank in the back of the old Lakeview Elementary School in Lakewood, WA.
Diane Formoso was a bus driver for the school and found that most of her students were in need. That Christmas a little boy got on her bus and shared with tears in his eyes that Santa was not coming to his house because his mother had to pay the rent. Diane made sure that Santa did come to Michael’s house that year. That was when the clothing bank started in the back of the counselor’s office to help struggling families and Caring for Kids was born. Diane is the founder and executive director working on a daily basis to help kids in need. Each time a new project started it was with one story of need.
