No Child Sleeps Outside crowdfunding campaign – get a team together to help us raise $1.5 million in 45 days! We CAN bring more children and families inside to warmth, safety and stability this winter! www.nochildsleepsoutside.org. Need help setting up your team page? email Lea@marysplaceseattle.org.

Help us fill the Santa Store!  Santa needs your help! His list of Mary’s Place families has doubled this year. Boys, girls, moms, and dads who have left behind homes and traditions are hoping to find joy and peace this holiday season. And there is something you can do to help! Our Holiday Wish List is here – you can shop and drop in bins on the Amazon campus, or ship directly to Mary’s Place! Gifts should arrive by Dec 16 to make it in time for our Holly Jolly Party for Mary’s Place families!

Winter Clothing Drive: the weather is cold and our families and children need warm winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves – and socks! You can help by holding a Winter Clothing Drive for Mary’s Place!

Decorate a shelter for the holidays! We need supplies and/or teams to bring the Merry and Bright to our area shelters.

A Home for the Holidays: Enjoy a night out with the Amazon Symphony Orchestra and guests a cappella group Vocally Self-Critical at A Home for the Holidays, a benefit for Mary’s Place on December 14 at the Amazon Event Center. Search “Mary’s Place Pops” on Amazon Wiki for info! More details: http://www.marysplaceseattle.org/blog/home-for-the-the-holidays/

Brooks Fun Run: Get a team and put on your best Holly Jolly gear and join us for this fun 3-mile Holiday Fun Run! Saturday, December 9 starting at 9am. We’ll finish the run with raffle prizes, burgers from Dick’s Drive-In, and Brooks is donating 10% of sales to the No Child Sleeps Outside campaign from Dec 3 through Dec 10. Register here!

We always welcome volunteers and our kids could use help with homework! Email volunteer@marysplaceseattle.org if you would like to help!
