Filling the Holiday with Hope and Joy

ALSC Member Pattie Lenz had submitted the following article addressed to all within our community.

As the Christmas Holiday nears the spirit of generosity tends to increase for many of us. It is during this time of year, we wish to extend an invitation for you to join us in helping financially strapped families from our area to make Christmas special for their children. The need is great and is growing each year.

Pattie can easily recall many heartwarming stories and pleasant experiences witnessing the thrill and delight in a child’s face when they receive an unexpected gift from someone who cares. You too can help spread this joy by:
  • Organizing a toy drive in your place of business.
  • Volunteering to shop or assist parents with shopping.
  • Referring a local family you know that needs help.
  • Purchasing an unwrapped toy or two for children 0-11 or give gift cards ($25.00) for youth 12-18 from Fred Meyer; Target Stores; or H'n'M and donate them to the Angle Lake Family Resource Center.
Please bring toys, gift cards and/or monetary donations to the Angle Lake Family Resource Center located at 4040 So. 188th Street by December 2nd.  They will be accepting donations between the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

For more information concerning the Holiday of Hope, please contact Zak Eskenazi at the Angle Lake Resource Center by phoning 206-816-3241 or by email at
