Between festive parties to attend, gifts to shop for and end-of-year deadlines to meet, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. But at POA, we believe it’s important to take some time amid the madness to give back to our community. We’re spreading cheer to those in need this holiday season and we’d love for you to join us! Read below, then come see us to show a little kindness to your less fortunate neighbors this month.
Adopt a Family Program through Salvation Army.
This year, we are participating in Salvation Army’s “Adopt a Family” program. Not all families are able to afford gifts for the holidays on top of their everyday needs, so this program aims to provide presents and make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling financially. If you would like to help us in donating to the family we have adopted, we invite you to bring a gift card (or as many as you’d like) in when you make your next POA visit. The gift cards can be any amount and can be from grocery stores, clothing stores, hardware stores, toy stores, etc. The deadline to donate to this worthy cause is December 10th. Below are some details about the family members and their interests:
Interests: Video cameras, batteries, socks
Interests: Cast iron skillet, dishes, griddle
Oldest Child (Male)
Interests: Video games, drawing books, comic books
Middle Child (Male)
Interests: Nerf bow and arrow, NBA basketball, video games
Youngest Child (Female)
Interests: Shopkins, rubber band bracelet kits, dolls with long hair to braid
Hospital Toy Drive for Seattle Children’s Hospital.
If you’re looking for more ways to give, we are also putting on a toy drive for Seattle Children’s Hospital this month. Financial and emotional stresses can dampen the holiday cheer of children living in poverty. If you’d like to help us bring the magic of the season to those who need it most and put smiles on the faces of Seattle-area children, we invite you to bring a new, unwrapped toy to our front desk on your next POA visit. The deadline to donate a toy to a child in need is December 20th.
