December 2018

Christmas House is now closed for the season. Thank you to everyone who provided gifts or money to buy gifts for the children, to the Boys & Girls Club for providing our home, and to the hundreds of volunteers who teamed together to help make this Christmas a happy holiday for all the families who shopped with us this year.

Gift and money donations are accepted year-round and will be used at Christmas House 2019. See the Donate button below or click DONATE on the left sidebar to learn about more ways you can help year-round.

Providing Christmas Gifts to 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 2018 we provided over 45,500 gifts to 7,185 children from 2,390 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.

Hundreds of 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.

Christmas House has exciting opportunities for shoppers, volunteers and contributors. Select links below or on the left sidebar to learn more about how you can receive help during the Christmas season or offer help throughout the year.
