Thank you for helping kids have good holiday

As 2013 comes to a close, the Snohomish Boys &Girls Club would like to thank the Snohomish community and others throughout the county for another amazing holiday season. Because of so many of you, more that 250 of our Snohomish Boys &Girls Club kids had a very Merry Christmas. Your generosity brought many smiles to the faces of our children and many words of gratitude and relief from our families and guardians.

Snohomish is indeed a unique community in that the support for each other is so strong and unwavering. It is amazing to see the service clubs (Lions, Kiwanis and Rotary), the Chamber, Snohomish School District, city of Snohomish, the business community, American Legion, Snohomish Eagles, Elks, Soroptimist of Everett, Snohomish Networking Women, the faith community and countless volunteers and individuals working together to continue to support our Boys &Girls Club and the community as a whole.

On behalf of the Boys &Girls Clubs of Snohomish County, our staff, and our kids, thank you for a wonderful 10th year in Snohomish. We look forward to many, many more!

Marci Volmer

Snohomish Boys &Girls Club, Director
