Mission in Motion: Two Providence groups volunteer at Christmas House
Published January 04, 2016
Back by popular demand, Providence caregivers took time out of their busy holiday season to volunteer at the local Christmas House. Christmas House is a Christmas program that was started 35 years ago out of a local man's garage. His mission was to give away toys and clothes to local families in need of Christmas gifts for their kids.
Over the years, the non-profit toy and clothes drive has developed into a massive outpouring of love and support to those in our community who need it most. This year, over the three weeks of operation at the Everett Boys and Girls Club, Christmas House supplied over 45,000 items of clothing and toys to 2,750 local families which reached over 8,000 kids.
If you're interested in volunteering next year or donating in some capacity, please check out their website. Great work caregivers for exemplifying the Providence Mission in our community!
