Our Mission:

 

The mission of Emerald City Holiday Project is to raise donations of various forms to help the less fortunate youth and families in the greater Seattle area.  This is done in conjunction and collaboration with other organizations in Seattle that have similar goals, but have differing platforms from which to launch their efforts.  The collaborative effect of these efforts between the different organizations provides for a greater and more widespread reach into the community for fundraising events, resulting in more successful fundraising efforts.

 

Our Goal:

 

Our goal is to co-host up to four fundraising events each year that directly benefit the youth and and families in Seattle in greatest need.

 

Activities:

 

The principal activity for Emerald City Holiday Project is the Tailgate for Tots toy drive event that is held during the month of November or December.  This event takes place prior to or during Seattle Seahawks football game, where people bring toys and donations rather than paying a fee to enter the tailgate festivities.  Toys and money donated at this event are subsequently distributed to children and families that may not otherwise receive any toys.  In 2015 the toys are going to be distributed to less fortunate families that participate in the Lake City Holiday Project, run by the Meadowbrook Cares organization located in the Lake City Neighborhood in North Seattle.
