Transform Burien, a cooperative group of Christ-centered churches located in the Burien/Highline area, will be holding a special Toy/Gift Giveaway event on Sunday, Dec. 19th for families that find it hard to provide the gifts they would like to this Christmas.

In addition to this giveaway event, Transform Burien hosts a free hot meal for families and people in need every Sunday from 3pm – 5pm and free sack lunches every Wednesday from 12pm – 3pm in the former location of the Burien Community Center at 425 SW 144th Street (at the intersection of 4th SW & SW 146th).

Guests are also provided with basic grocery needs and are welcome to a community clothing closet where they can choose from wardrobe necessities. These meals feed anywhere from 60 to over 100 people on average.

In a time when seemingly everything is in need, this group of eight local community churches have provided for the most vulnerable in our community; however, none of would be possible without donations from you, the community members. Toys are still in need for the gift giveaway on December 19th as well as non-perishable grocery items and clothing.

Donations can be made at the former Burien Community Center, on Wednesday from 12pm – 2pm; Friday from 9am – 11am; or before 4pm on Sunday, Dec. 19th.

If you can help make a parent make their child’s Christmas brighter in a difficult time please contact the Transform Burien group with your donation:

    I think that in this tough economy, these group of churches are doing an awesome thing for families in need. Way to go guys! Giving of themselves to serve others, that is what it is all about…

    Burien Little Theatre is holding a food drive for Transform Burien before and during every production of “Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis.” Someone is at the theater space in the old community center to accept your donations from 6 pm to 10:30 pm this Friday and Saturday, and from 12 to 4:30 on Sunday. Even if you can’t stay for the show, lend a hand to someone in need.

    I think it`s pretty cool that the BLT is joining with the churches in this endeavor.
    Maybe a couple of other local business` could take notes.
