April 28-Think Outside the Car Event

Think Outside the Car

Think Outside the Car (TOC) is working closely with four elementary schools in West Seattle: Arbor Heights, Gatewood, Lafayette and Pathfinder. We are helping these schools reduce air pollution and carbon emissions by building Walking School Buses, Bike Programs and No-Idle Campaigns at their schools. The project, funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, supports parent and student volunteers in creating these exciting new programs through fiscal sponsorship, materials and supplies, and planning.

To get the word out and get the community involved West Seattle CoolMom and TOC Steering Committee is having an event April 28th from 10 am to 2pm at Westside School located on 34th and Holden Street.
