Sharing Love and Warmth this Holiday Season

There’s been a lot of love shining in our offices lately. Groups of volunteers have wrapped and sorted generous holiday gift donations and helped make sure we could get them to families on a weekend day that worked best for them. We are very grateful to all who joined us to make this special time of year, which can be stressful for many, a little brighter for kids and families in our communities.

Thanks to the Flamingo Fanatics Society and Pierce County’s Project Linus group for making sure we have plenty of cozy blankets to give to kids and families, both during the holidays and beyond. Thanks to Mercy Worldwide, Seattle Branch, the Ticket to Dream Foundation, and several local community members for donating so many toys. Thanks to Intracorp Homes for donating dozens of warm coats for kids. Southwest Plumbing and other groups and families have hosted food drives to help families with holiday meals and basic needs.

Amara’s Ambassador Board, the Chambers Bay Women’s Club, and Intracorp Homes volunteers helped make sure presents were beautifully wrapped and distributed with care. And our dedicated Family Resource Center staff brought everyone and everything together last Saturday so nearly 20 local families with 45 children People holding new coats for kidsbetween them can experience a little magic this season.

It is in partnership with our incredible community that we can surround and support families through some of their joys and challenges. We are ending the year with gratitude and hope.
