Chosen from hundreds of student essays on the topic “How does getting an education make you smile everyday?”, Ms. Mohamed will also have a future internship opportunity with RedCloud to put her college education to work. She will be honored on stage along with three other scholarship winners on Saturday, November 17th at the 18th Annual Toys For Kids Gala at the Bellevue Hyatt.

“Duerte’s essay detailed her inspiring story of perseverance, mentorship to younger children facing similar challenges, and how higher education will help her build success for herself and those around her. Her story jumped off the page as someone we knew we wanted to support,” said Alston. “Toys For Kids is doing some amazing things in our local community, so we’re proud to be joining them to help deserving students take the next step in their education. If we can make an impact on one young person, they can pass that along to others, and we believe this ripple will expand far and wide to make a difference in our community.”

Known for providing underserved children presents at the holidays, Toys for Kids has expanded its services in the third year of its scholarship program to ensure young people have every opportunity to continue their education.

“RedCloud has stepped up to the plate allowing Toys For Kids to provide more college scholarships than ever before,” said Rick Rizzs, Toys For Kids Co-Founder and the voice of the Seattle Mariners. “We thank their team for their support and can’t wait to see to see the positive path Duarte and our other scholarship winners take from here.”

In additional to supporting Toys For Kids, RedCloud's community program works with organizations to provide prolonged support to those that focus on the physical, cognitive, and emotional development of young people – our region’s most important asset. The RedCloud team is proud to provide financial support and in-kind consulting services to other partners including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound, Junior Achievement of Washington, and the University of Washington Foster School Consulting and Business Development Center.
