Kitsap Community Food Co-op supports Christmas Angels Program

In just a few short weeks, the magic of Christmas and the holiday season will fill the hearts and minds of children everywhere.

The holidays, however, can be a time of increased stress and hardship for many low-income parents in Kitsap County as they are forced to choose between paying bills or buying gifts for their children.

The Kitsap Community Food Co-op will be collecting children's gift items from now until December 8th to benefit the Kitsap Community Resources

Christmas Angels Program. Last year KCR's Christmas Angels program provided gifts to 2,231 needy children. The KCR Christmas Angel program

makes an immediate impact in the lives of thousands of low-income families in our county and we would love to have you help be a part of its continued success.

If you are interested in donating unwrapped clothes, books, toys or games, we will be collecting them at all of our upcoming events as well as in our office during regular office hours (Tuesdays 4:30pm - 6:30pm/Thursdays 3:30pm - 6:30pm).

Here are some of the items needed this year:

Clothing, all sizes, but more for ages 10+

Shoes and boots (snow and rain) of all sizes

Jackets, all sizes

Bedding: twin and full size

Toiletries for teen girls and boys: deodorant, razors, soap, bath and body

Baby basics

Toddler beds and twin size beds

Things for teens: gift cards to clothing stores, electronic stores, movie tickets, restaurants

Drop off location: Kitsap Community Food Co-op
