Shopping this week? Consider adding a few extras to your regular purchases to help out your neighbors. The North Seattle Family Center’s (NSFC) 2013 Holiday Helper Program is in desperate need of unused toys and clothes and $25 grocery store gift cards.
The Holiday Helper Program allows families to “shop” from December 16-19 for items for their children 18 years old or younger. Each family receives two gifts per child as well as an article of clothing such as a coat, sweatshirt, socks or hat and clothes. Last year, the NSFC helped more than 300 children have a merry holiday season. This year, they have not yet received enough donations to help those in need.
Below is a list of suggested gifts. Items can be dropped off directly at the North Seattle Family Center. Please note, they have recently relocated to the Lake City Professional Building (just south of the Lake City Library) 2611 N.E. 125th Street, Suite 145. For more information about the Holiday Helper Program, call Colleen at 206.364.7930, ext. 2730.
NSFC is part of the Children’s Home Society of Washington, a statewide organization supporting strong families and loving stable homes.
