StandUp for Kids – Olympia/Thurston County
After a few hours of dedicated volunteer work resulting in 200+ beautifully wrapped gifts, our StandUp For Kids Olympia team is ready to kick off the holiday season by giving! Our Holiday Gift Wrapping event was a huge success and we could not have done it without our wonderful team of volunteers and donors. From blankets to books to socks and more, we were able to fill 3 huge Santa bags with gifts which will be delivered to local shelters around Thurston County and to youth on the street.
In the midst of wrapping, our team took a moment to honor and remember those who have passed away on the streets, during a beautiful candlelit ceremony led by our Executive Director.
We are so thankful for the people who continue to believe in the youth and our mission to end the cycle of youth homelessness – we could not do it without you! We can’t wait to deliver these gifts in the coming weeks!
