The Christmas spirit was alive and well in Snoqualmie Valley this holiday season thanks to the hard work and generous donations from our citizens, community groups, businesses, schools, stores and churches. The Kiwanis Club thanks the following groups that participated in the 2014 One Voice/Kiwanis giving tree event:

  •  45 businesses that set up giving trees and collected gifts for needy families
  • The hundreds of volunteers from Kiwanis, Encompass, the North Bend Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, other area churches, Si View Metro Park and the community that distributed Christmas trees, collected donations and helped families find and gift wrap just the right gift for their kids
  • Hundreds of families who shopped and donated gifts and money
  • Local school children that collected toys
  • The businesses that collected clothing
  • Frankie’s for donating pizza for volunteers
  • Genie Industries for dedicating employees to help out throughout the event
  • Safeway for donating carts to be used at the event
  • The LDS church for donating their North Bend building for gift distribution and wrapping presents

All of you helped make Christmas morning special for the 563 kids in 217 families that were served.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this wonderful event.  We look forward to having you join us in 2015.
