Care to help wrap presents, donate presents,!3{2}volunteer at the Miller Holiday Party?

Miller Community Center and the Country Doctor Community Clinic (on 19th)  host an annual giant holiday party for the clinic’s patients and other (mostly disadvantaged) families in Seattle. Kids from 0 to 10 years old enjoy games and receive presents, and everyone gets a holiday meal.

Party is Saturday December 10 from 10 AM – 2 PM at Miller Community Center, 330 – 19th Ave. E.

.Volunteer opportunities:

  • Tuesday December 6th, 5 – 9 PM at Miiler:  help wrap the 1,200+ presents for the party. 
  • Saturday, December 10th: volunteer at the party. Turn up at 9AM to be ready for the guests at 10 AM.
  • Help with set-up for the party, on Friday December 9th, would also be appreciated
  • (for the real heros) help with clean-up after the party: Saturday 2 – 5 PM.

You can donate presents (for 0 to 10 year olds): bring them to the wrapping party (see above) or drop them off at Miller Community Center (hours)

We could also use the donated services of a childrens’ entertainer/DJ, should you be one or know one!  

A bilingual childrens’ entertainer/DJ will be there from 11 – 1. Another good reason to come along!

For further details, or to volunteer for the party,  contact Center Director Jeremy Doane (206-684-4753, ).

This slideshow (from last year) gives the flavor of the gift wrapping,  and of  the actual party, which served 1660 kids:

I did this last year and it was a blast. Unfortunately I have a meeting I can’t get out of this year on the gift wrapping night, but I encourage anyone in the neighborhood to join in!
