Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Church’s Holiday Drive for Poverty Level Children in the north end

SUUC members Carol Roach and Laura Banks
coordinate the church Holly House contributions

This season, the SUUC Social Action Committee is joining a number of other community groups to support the Holly House Christmas project

Holly House serves 2,000 children from the north Seattle area (Shoreline, Lynnwood, etc.), and the Christmas project is a hallmark event. Groups donate items to stock a cost-free “store” where low income parents can each pick up a few quality new items to make their children’s lives cozier and more fun. 

You can help by bringing one or more of the following items (new and without any gift wrapping) to the church on Sunday, December 1, or Sunday, December 8. The Holly House store will open for the parents on December 13 and 14 while the children play elsewhere in the facility. 

Warm pajamas, a package of new socks, a package of new underwear, and/or a toy. 

Your gifts are not for a specified child, so get something –or several things—for a child the age and sex you want. Remember that the gifts will be selected by the parents of as many as 2,000 children, newborns to age 18. Nothing will go to waste. By the way, Holly House has a special goal of receiving 900 pairs of warm pajamas to go to children this year. Why warm pajamas? Because many of these children sleep in unheated homes in the winter! 

For further information, contact Carol Roach or Laura Banks.

Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 14724 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155 or visit the website.
