Your generosity helped so many

Christmas House 2013 was very special! We were able to provide more than 55,000 gifts to over 3,000 low-income families and over 9,000 children from every city in Snohomish County. Christmas House could not have done this without generous grants, monetary, gift and in-kind donations from foundations, businesses, schools, churches, organizations and individuals.

It also could not have happened without an army of volunteers more than 800 strong. Special thanks to the North Everett Boys and Girls Club who generously donated the use of their large gymnasium as Christmas House’s home.

The board of directors of Christmas House sincerely thank everyone who made the 2013 giving season an overwhelming success!
