FW Cares for Kids, the non-profit in Federal Way that organizes the holiday toy drive/event for families in need, is collecting toys and donations for this year’s event. Families will submit wish lists and sign up for a slot to pick up the holiday gifts for their family, along with wrapping supplies. They will dress up the pick-up area with Santa, hot chocolate, popcorn and fun holiday décor to help keep the holiday spirit alive and make it a special pick-up drive-through experience.
We are anticipating an even greater need in 2022 as the economy has hit families in a real way. This is where we could really use your help.
It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving Club is less than a month away! This long-standing tradition for Federal Way Young Life is one of our most-anticipated events. It began in a private home for just a handful of kids and leaders and grew to a city-wide event held at Federal Way High School. During COVID, our community of staff, leaders, and volunteers responded to the disruption by delivering meals, pies, and treats to our Young Life kids and their families. Last year, we began to rebuild and once again hosted a small but sweet Thanksgiving meal in a private home. This year, we continue to grow as we bring Thanksgiving Club back to a school — this time, at Decatur High School.
And so we ask you to join us in serving our teens an abundant Thanksgiving feast by donating and/or dishing food during the meal. It is truly a time of joy and gratitude and we would love for you to be a part of it! We need dozens of dishes and sides, so please share and invite your friends and family to help out as well! You will be blessed!
Will you help us fill their plates with turkey, ham, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, pie, and more? We appreciate any and all donations!
