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!
You can help Santa provide these families the joy of giving and receiving by filling the Mary’s Place Santa Store with gifts! We need to stock the shelves with new toys for children, and gifts for children to give to their parents and grandparents at our Holly Jolly Holiday Party on December 19.
You can help by placing a Mary’s Place Giving Tree in your office, apartment or condo building, or place of worship and filling it full of gift and shoe tags!
We’ll provide you with these tags for your tree:
- Shoe Tags that request a $20 donation so that we can buy a gift certificate for shoes on behalf of the donor. We hope to give out 2,500 shoe cards for new pairs of shoes.
- Toy Tags for a toy that a child at Mary’s Place has asked Santa to bring. Parents will wrap those gifts for their children so they can see those little faces light up this holiday season!
- Gift Tags for items that children will select from and wrap for their parents.
Unwrapped gifts and donations should be brought to our warehouse location at 9 South Nevada Street, Seattle, no later than Saturday, December 16. Drop off hours are as follows:
