Christmas House 2021
Christmas House Directors are working with the Snohomish Health District regarding current state and county COVID guidelines and are developing a plan to safely operate Christmas House 2021. A final decision on whether or not Christmas House will open this year will be made closer to the holidays. Information currently on this site reflects usual operation and not necessarily the plan for December 2021. Stay tuned – check back in October for more updates and volunteer registration (opens Oct. 5). Our goal is to continue helping low-income families provide a joyous Christmas for their children.
Providing Christmas Gifts to Children in Snohomish County
Christmas House is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization in Everett, Washington that provides an opportunity for qualifying, low-income, Snohomish County parents to receive free holiday gifts for their children age infant – 18 yrs old.
In 2019 we provided over 44,530 gifts to 7,025 children from 2,380 families (infant – 18 yrs old). In 2020 when we were not able to open due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we provided 7,500 gifts to Snohomish County food banks that partnered with us to distribute the gifts to clients with children age 0-12, plus we provided 780 gifts for older children to other locations.
Hundreds of people contribute to the success of Christmas House. Some contribute their time, some donate money or gifts, some hold fundraisers, some volunteer their skills … the list goes on and on, and you can be a part of it all.
