Can you imagine a Christmas where your number one gift request is laundry detergent? Or gas cards or dog and cat food. Well that’s what advertiser Moss Chiropractic’s 2010 family-in-need want for Christmas.
Dr. Jonna Moss has been sponsoring families for Christmas for over 15 years. This years’ family lives in Burien and consists of a single mom and three teenagers. They need clothes, accessories, board games and general household items like toilet paper and laundry detergent. Check out the tree at the clinic. It’s loaded with their wish-list and sizes.
With a week to go before Christmas, Dr. Moss’ lodge like waiting room is filling up with gifts. They hope to have a van’s worth of presents by late next week for delivery. Most of the presents come from Dr. Moss’ patients and employees, but you — our BTB readers — can make a difference by dropping off something that would brighten Christmas for this family. Share the joy and bounty of the season.
You can also buy $1 raffle tickets for a basket of homemade canned veggies or a basket of Aromatherapaes. All proceeds will benefit the family.
They’re also collecting food and miscellaneous items for the “Transform Burien Resource Center” located in the former Burien Community Center. You can drop off canned or boxed food, baby food, cat and dog food, blankets, coats and sleeping bags at Moss Chiropractic clinic at 612 SW 152nd in Burien. For any food donation you’ll receive a coupon for 30% off a massage (cash only).
According to Dr. Moss, “Each year we strive to give back to our community as well as a particular family who is in need. With the help of the community we can really have a positive loving impact.”
