Help Marjorie Get Gifts for Those in Need

As E.B. White once said, “The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you”.  Every year the Seattle Center Foundation sponsors a “Sharing Gift Box”.  What strikes me the most about the “wish list” that recipients of these gifts put together is there shear simplicity.  I often look over the list and notice grandparents asking for gifts that they will give to their grandchildren, kids asking for toys, but also basic needs.  Not only am I compelled to join in and assist, but I am inspired by the strength of a community.  If we gather gifts from a few members of our community, we will fill a few more baskets.

This week, Marjorie is asking you to assist us in gift giving!

We are happy to offer you a glass of wine as a gesture of appreciation for dropping the following gifts off at Marjorie this week.  Gifts must be turned in by Friday, December 18th, so don’t procrastinate.

Purchase from this list, drop off at Marjorie, and we will drop the gifts off to our friends, Aaron and Charlotte, who have a wrapping party every year at the Seattle Center.  Although the glass of wine is a little incentive to get you in here with a gift in hand, there really is no greater joy than giving to someone in need.  I love adding to the joy of a child’s Christmas with an unexpected toy!

Vermillion would like a CD Player with AM/FM, and she needs a new hoodie (pink and small).  She is 14.

Catherine would like Mega Block Set and she needs a pink coat size 5T, or a sweater set.  She is 4.

Chase would like a Remote Control Car and he needs pajamas, size 5.  He is 4.

Alexia would like a Target Gift Card, and needs pajamas, size large (women’s).  She is 16.

Sam would like a Cardigan, size large and needs socks, size 10, white.  He is 75.

By bringing in one of more of these simple gifts to Marjorie, you are fulfilling a wish.  We are happy to say thanks with a complimentary glass of wine…red, white or bubbles, and deliver them to Charlotte and Aaron for wrapping.  So simple!!!

Check daily updates to see what we still need.

Enjoy the holidays.
