500 Kid CARE

With the 2018 Lake City Holiday Project now complete, the many ‘elves’ that support the effort can tend to their own list and celebration. Working with the North Helpline and North Seattle Family Center in Lake City, these two providers comprise the bulk of MC2’s festive Distribution Day at the Lake City Community Center.

Also a part of the campaign are Magnuson Park’s Solid Ground Housing Group, Meadowbrook View/ Low Income Housing Institute and Seattle Parks local Community Centers. These providers enroll families who qualify for holiday support and then pick up their holiday bags at the Collection Center in Meadowbrook.

The distribution effort got a big lift from Cafe Javasti, who donated decorative holiday cookies with a snowflake theme for each recipient who picked up. Big thanks to the Coffee House. With 500 children moving through the Project, we are appreciative of the many donors (500 Kids!) and of course, those hardworking elves who engaged the many families who enrolled. Now, off to checking that list…
