Holiday Community Service Project

 

Give the Gift of Choice

Our NAIFA Seattle/Eastside has charitably supported the YWCA Family Village in Redmond for 15 years through clothing drives and activities programs. This December we celebrate the holidays with a Gift of Choice donation. The staff of YWCA Family Village cannot distribute cash to the fourty families who make the YWCA's faciity in Redmond their home. However since they are located within walking distance of Safeway, Fred Meyer, Kohl's, and Target we ask that you bring a gift card for $15 or $20 to the Holiday Social. In lieu of gift cards, check can be made payable to YWCA of Seattle and put "Redmond Family Village" in the note line.
