We have been so fortunate. Since our opening five years ago, our community has supported us around every turn, and we believe in giving back. For our fourth year, Hillside is participating in the Adopt-a-Family program through the YWCA of King County.
The YWCA’s Adopt-a-Family program helped more than 1,400 families in need last year. 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 that includes a 7-year-old boy, a 3-year-old boy, and a 2-year-old girl. 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 $300 from our Hillside family to help another 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. We will need to deliver the gifts on December 9th. If you have any questions or would like to contribute, ask your bartender.
