Bag stuffing fundraiser! December 29th

A HUGE thank you to our wonderful community and volunteers tonight. We had such a great turnout. It exceeded our expectations. It was great to see the kids involved in helping pack and organize the bags. We will go through and count all the snack bags made later this week and give an update. We would not be able to do this without all of your support and thank you to Merrillee Bradshaw – Thrivent Financial for sponsoring the event and providing food and answering financial questions.

Thank you Christina Ball and Edmonds Church of God for giving us this space!

Thank you to Donut Factory Inc for donating donuts for our dessert tonight! They have such good donuts!

Thank you to Portofino Pizza and Pasta in Edmonds for giving a great deal to Merrillee for the yummy pizzas tonight.
