Ninth District Congressman Adam Smith will present three donations of his Congressional pay raise next week to Cascade Christian High School, the Rainier Education Foundation, and Project Look in Burien.

On Tuesday, November 28, at 8:00 a.m., Smith will present a $500 donation and speak to a classroom of students at Cascade Christian High School, located at 811 21st Street, SE in Puyallup. The $500 will go towards the purchase of new science equipment for the school.
On Tuesday, November 28, at 3:00 p.m., Smith will present a $500 donation and speak to teachers at Rainier High School, located at 308 2nd Street West in Rainier. The $500 will go towards the purchase of thesauruses, a color printer, and a spirometer for measuring lung capacity for the district's science program.
On Wednesday, November 29 at noon, Smith will present a $250 donation to Project LOOK (Learning Outreach Organization for Kids) at the Seahurst Village apartment complex at 13737 12th Avenue SW, Building 31, Apt. 269 in Burien.
