Holiday Gifts for Shelter Guests


COVID has changed a lot of things in our lives, but one thing we won’t allow it to change is giving back over the holidays. After a long series of deliberations, we’ve decided to make a few necessary changes in how the holiday giving program runs this year.

  • We will not be able to have any group volunteer events; this includes our annual gift-wrapping extravaganza weekend. Because of this pivot and being unable to wrap every gift in the traditional sense, we will be collecting donations of gift bags & tissue paper so that items can still be ‘wrapped’ for residents and shelter guests.
  • For gifts for shelter guests and adults in our housing programs, we are narrowing down our gift list to only a handful of items so that we can ensure that everyone gets something of equal value. These items can be purchased directly from the Amazon wishlist or you can use our gift guide (attached) to shop in-store. Items you purchase in-store can be dropped off at our South Lake Union Office or mailed to the 77 building.
  • Population Served : Families, Youth & Young Adults (YYA), Veterans, LGBTQ+, Communities of Color, Disabled
  • Additional Details : Family Friendly
