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 2015 we provided more than 45,000 gifts to over 8,000 children from 2,750 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 and are responsible for putting bright smiles on the faces of over 8,000 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.
