Holiday Helpers!

How can you get involved?

For most, the holidays are a joyous season. For others, it is a time of worry and stress. We need partners during the holiday season to help us serve approximately 50 families this year including about 30 teens and tweens and 50 children under the age of 10.  In addition to the families, we will try to provide a stocking for the individuals in our program who may find themselves alone during this time.  Our donations come in a variety of ways from the community.  Listed are some of the ways you can help this holiday season.  If you would like to help spread some joy or have questions or additional ideas, please contact Mary Hopkins at 360.719.4073 or mhopkins@secondstephousing.org.

  • Adopt a family (children and parents)
  • Adopt a child
  • Host a giving tree (we provide the tags, you provide the tree)
  • Host a gift drive (teen gift drive, gift card drive, stocking drive, gifts for parents)
  • Volunteer at one of our shopping days where residents shop from the donated gifts for their children and families

Date deadlines are important to make sure we are able to help everyone on our list before Christmas.  We have begun pairing donors with families already. All gifts will need to be delivered (or we can arrange to pick them up) no later than Monday, December 18th.
