Founder Diane Formoso retired from the Clover Park School District in 2004. Diane had been a school bus driver since 1971. She started Caring For Kids when a kindergarten boy got on her bus wearing his mother’s high heeled boots because he had no shoes of his own. Diane works tirelessly to provide basic needs for the children of our communities.
“Diane is impossible to resist. She leads by example, and her devotion to her students and to public education is never in doubt among those countless lives she has touched in her community. Diane is fueled by an unlimited love for children and a stubborn streak that refuses to let a single need go unmet.”-Children’s Alliance Award
