City Of Burien, Police Department Seeking Gift Card Donations For Needy Families
The City of Burien, along with the Burien Police and King County Sheriff’s Department, are seeking donations of gift cards for area kids and families in need this holiday season.
Gift Cards in $20 increments are preferred, specifically from the local Fred Meyer and Safeway stores.
The deadline is Monday, Dec. 21st, and donated cards can be dropped off at City Hall during regular business hours.
There’s also a great opportunity for a local business or resident to “adopt” a needy family, and there are at least 35 in need this year.
Here’s more info from Nicki Maraulja, Community Service Officer:
Itâ€™s that time of year again to help out our kids and families in need for Christmas.
We have some 40 families that could use an extra hand this year.
We’re now collecting any gift cards for either Fred Meyer or Safeway.
These gift cards can be dropped off at Burien City Hall during City hours, until Dec. 21st.
Cards should be in $20.00 increments.
We would also be interested in any business or community member that would be interested in adopting a family. I have at least 35 families as of right now.
If anyone has any questions, I can be reached at the precinct. in Burien, at 206-296-3333.
