Adopt a YWCA Family

Christmas is right around the corner and the YWCA has 30 families who have yet to be paired with a sponsor for the Adopt-A-Family program. It would be great if we could Junior League of Seattle members (and their friends, family and co-workers!) to see if we can come up with a few more sponsors for the YWCA.

Groups who can lend a hand will work directly with our contact at the YWCA, Nichelle Hilton.

To sign up: Please send your request to sponsor a family directly to Nichelle Hilton at the YWCA at by end-of-day Monday, December 12th. In this e-mail please state if you would like to sponsor a small family (1-2 children) or a large family (3-5 children.) The YWCA recommeds 2 gifts per child, each in the $25 range, and one $15 gift card for each adult in the family (e.g. for a family of 2 children and 1 parent, your group can expect to spend approx $115 total.) Please include your name and contact information

Important Details: Gifts are to be dropped off directly at the YWCA Martin Luther King Community Center (old MLK Elementary School) at 3201 E. Republican St. Seattle, WA 98112

Delivery/Drop-off times: December 14th – December 16th, 8:00am – 5:00pm

**Because these are last minute assignments, the YWCA will take drop-offs on Monday, December 19th from 8:00am to 9:00am as well**

Once you have signed up, you will receive all the information you need from Nichelle at the YWCA; including your family assignment and shopping/wrapping/labeling/drop-off details! Thanks for your assistance! Nichelle knows that we reach a lot of people and they need to get the word out fast so they can make sure they reach everyone in need this year!

The YWCA will greatly appreciate all the help that the Junior League of Seattle has to offer!
