The First Transit team in Tacoma, Washington, participated in numerous fundraising activities throughout 2016 and 2017 including bake sales, raffles, toy, and clothing donations, chili potlucks, and wear your favorite NFL shirt day.

All proceeds went to The Wishing Well Foundation and the foster kids they serve, raising more than $4,000.

The Wishing Well Foundation serves children in Pierce County, Washington, who are making the difficult transition while being placed with a foster home and parents. They provide foster kids of the program with clothing and much-needed supplies.  

According to Erika Thompson, Executive Director of The Wishing Well Foundation, “We give foster care children confidence by providing for their basic material needs.”
