Christmas Gifts for Children in Snohomish County
Christmas House is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization in Everett, Washington that provides an opportunity for qualifying, low-income, Snohomish County parents to select free holiday gifts for their children age infant – 18 yrs old. In 2016 we provided 46,426 gifts to 7,946 children from 2,634 families. Each December our “store” is located in the Boys & Girls Club gym at 2316-12th Street, Everett, WA. Our mailing address during the year is PO Box 717, Everett, WA 98206.
Many people contribute to the success of Christmas House. Some contribute their time, some donate money or gifts, some hold fundraisers, some volunteer their skills … the list goes on and on, and you can be a part of it all.
