2015 Shopping AreaChristmas House is very happy to announce that the location of the Christmas House store will be in the Everett Boys and Girls Club community gymnasium. The use of the gym between Thanksgiving and Christmas weekends is a much-appreciated donation, as the facility and location are a perfect home for the Christmas House “store.”

For many years, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Snohomish County have been in the forefront of youth development, dedicated to ensuring that all our youth have a greater access to recreational and educational activities that will enhance their lives and shape their future.

The Everett Boys and Girls Club is located at 2316 12th Street, Everett.

“Santa’s workshop,” behind the store wall partitions, starts out very well-stocked, all organized into sections by the many volunteers that help move all the merchandise from storage areas into the gym late each November.


The hundreds of boxes of toys that volunteers move into Santa’s Workshop must all be unpacked and sorted before being moved out into the “store” area for selection.
