For our sixth year, Hillside participated in the Adopt-a-Family program through the YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish. We sponsored two families, and we asked you to contribute. You stepped up! Thanks to all of you, we exceeded our goal, and we were able to help four children have a merry Christmas. Thank you!
The YWCA’s Adopt-a-Family program helps families in need who are trying to get back on their feet. The families who sign up to receive holiday assistance are current YWCA clients. Some are living in their shelters, fleeing domestic violence, or in young parent units. Some are in transitional housing, and housing for Veterans with PTSD. All of these families are on the road to self-sufficiency and are receiving assistance with job training, housing, counseling, and other services. They are working hard to improve their lives!
This year, we have been given the opportunity to support a family of six. Through this program, each child will receive at least two holiday gifts, and the parents will receive a grocery store gift card.
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $600 from our Hillside family to help this family during the holidays. Hillside will also contribute some matching funds. We want the holidays to be wonderful for our adopted family.
To help us reach our goal, please consider donating some cash at Hillside. We will collect all the donations, purchase the gifts and gift cards, and deliver everything to the YWCA, so we need your donations by December 7. If you have any questions or would like to contribute, ask your bartender.
YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities.
