Holiday Fair

Where: Hudtloff Middle School Cafeteria

When: December 11am-1pm

How to qualify: Kids need to be on free and reduced lunch schedules, and the school counselors make recommendations.

How this fair works each year:

  • We need volunteers! Volunteers are needed Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, and Saturday until 2:00pm.
  • Friday afternoon set up begins at the Hudtloff cafeteria at 3:00pm.
  • Saturday morning volunteers pack bags of clothing and gifts for families.
  • Families arrive at 11:00am. Volunteers are needed to help distribute bags of goodies.
  • Volunteers are needed to pack up leftovers.

How Caring For Kids can provide this service to the community:

  • Clothing is purchased and donated all year long.
  • Toys/gifts are purchased and donated all year long.
  • A community knitting group makes hats and other knitted items throughout the year
  • Hams provided at cost by Plymouth Poultry.
  • Penny drives are successful with schools collecting hundreds of dollars.

    I still have families in CPSD, but my office has moved to downtown Tacoma. I’d like to refer some families for the Holiday Fair. Can you please forward me whatever forms/contact numbers I need to use?
    Also I’m available to volunteer for the event (as I did the Back to School event). Let me know what I can do!
