We are serving Federal Way School District families, invited by their school counselors, who have been identified as in need of support this Christmas. We will transform the gym into a festive environment where parents will be invited to come shop, at no cost, for gifts for their children, ages 1 to 18. Each parent can select multiple gifts for their children which they will then wrap, with the help of volunteers. As the parents are shopping, students will be provided with an opportunity to create gifts for someone important to them (parent, grandparent, guardian). Photographers will be available for family portraits with Santa, which will be printed on site and presented as a final gift to the family. We are planning on serving 270 families and estimate 1,200 children will be present at this event.
