From the City of Marysville:
Santa’s elves need your help to assist local families who are struggling this holiday season. There are several ways you can spread holiday cheer to benefit the Marysville Community Food Bank and Toy Store!
- Stop by and see Marysville Professional Firefighters, IAFF Local 3219, and Santa at Safeway (1258 State Ave, Marysville) December 3 through 6 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. They would love to accept your non-perishable foods, unwrapped toys, new books and cash or gift card donations.
- On Saturday, December 7 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., you can bring your donations to Keller Williams (1027 State Ave, Marysville) as they partner with Goodwill to fill an entire truck with new unwrapped toys that will create a little extra joy for area children who need it most this Christmas season.
- Donations for the food bank and toy store are also being accepted at dozens of locations throughout the Marysville area, including all City of Marysville government buildings and all fire stations. Families in need of services are asked to sign up directly by visiting the food bank in person (4150 88th St NE, Marysville) by Tuesday, December 3. No online or phone registration is available.
- Volunteers are still needed for the food bank and toy store this season. If you would like to volunteer at the food bank, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 360-658-1054. To volunteer at the toy store, send an email to email@example.com or contact Christie Veley at 360-363-8507.
The Marysville Community Food Bank and Toy Store is striving to meet its goal this year to provide toys and a coat to every local child in need. Formed in 1985 by several regional service organizations and their dedicated volunteers, the committee now serves more than 1,000 children in the 98270, 98271 and 98259 zip codes. Thank you for your support ensuring that every family in our community has their needs met this holiday season.
