“Thank you” to everyone who helped Christmas House in 2013 … we provided more than 55,350 gifts to 9,064 children from 3,066 families across Snohomish County. Just imagine all those smiling faces this Christmas! This wonderful accomplishment was made possible only because of the generous, helpful community we are fortunate to be a part of.
Thank you for visiting our Web page. Read more about our organization and learn how you can help and/or be helped by your community.
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. 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 and are responsible for putting bright smiles on the faces of over 9,000 children in Snohomish County on Christmas morning. Some contribute their time, some donate money or gifts, some hold fundraisers, some volunteer their skills … the list goes on and on.
