The Holiday Magic Store embodies the mission of Impact NW providing an opportunity for families to shop for free from a store filled with brand new items for their children, their household and themselves. Families that have shopped through the store have shared that this form of empowerment has had an immeasurable impact on their life – providing them with a sense of dignity and comfort in knowing that people within their own community truly care about them.
Ways to Get Involved
2. Collect & Drop Off Gift Donations
In partnership with KOIN Local 6 and other community partners, Impact NW will collect new, unwrapped gifts and household items from November 25 – December 18. Bring your unwrapped gift donation to one of our DROP OFF LOCATIONS. Not sure what to buy? Check out our WISH LIST here.
3. Host a Giving Tree
Get your office, faith community or family involved by hosting a Giving Tree filled with wishes from the families served at Impact NW. We provide the tags – you collect the gifts and bring them to one of our DROP OFF LOCATIONS. Check out our WISH LIST here for a full list of wanted gifts.
