MOSES LAKE BUSINESS ASSOCIATION

The Holidays are Coming! Service Ideas for Your Family!

This season is a wonderful time of year, especially for families. This is a great time to enjoy time together. If you want

meaningful family activities this Holiday season, consider doing a family service project. Here are some fantastic

family service projects for the Holiday season.

Fill a Stocking for a Foster Child

With over 260 children in Grant County Foster Care this project is organized by the Grant

County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children in Foster Care). Filling a stocking

for a Foster Child is a fantastic and fun service opportunity that can be fit around your

schedule. The concept is simple. We will provide you a stocking to fill with small gifts for a

child. You can choose whether you want to give to a boy or girl, and there are different age

categories to choose from as well. When you have filled the stocking with toys and other

goodies, you return it and we will give it to the child. This is easy and fun to do. Your child will

love helping to pick out presents to go to another child their age.

Ideas for the stocking include: age appropriate items such as $5 gift cards, blanket, pajamas,

stuffed animals, socks, underwear, books, coloring book/pads of paper, crayons/pen/pencils, school supplies,

chapstick, cosmetics, hair brush/comb, hygiene products, nail polish, toiletries, toothbrush, small games, small toys,

and snacks.

Children living in foster care have had to give up everything from family, home, routine to pets and favorite toys.

When a foster child has to move from home to home, personal items can get lost in the shuffle or left behind. A few of

the most comforting things for a child involve the bedtime routine. Gift cards provide children living in foster homes a

sense of control that many have never experienced, having come from the chaotic environment of abuse or neglect.

Suitcases are always needed as well to give a child a way to pack their items rather than using grocery bags.

Contact Teresa Wyman at 793-6700 x 4426 or twyman@grant.co.wa.us for more information.

Toys for Tots

Donating to Toys for Tots is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to change

someone's Christmas for the better. They take brand new donated toys and

distribute them to children who are less fortunate. You can donate at the Marine

Corps Recruiting office in the Desert Plaza Building at the Corner of Third Ave and

Alder St in Moses Lake from Nov. 5—Dec. 19th or at Sinkiuse Square during the Ag

Parade and Street Party on Nov. 30th in Moses Lake.

Call Sergeant Jimenez at 765-3039 for more information.

Salvation Army

I'm sure you see the red buckets and the ringing bells. The Salvation Army receives

millions of dollars a year to assist needy families, the homeless and the elderly. You

can change Christmas for someone just by offering your spare change on your way in

or out of the store while shopping this season or by volunteering to ring the bell. It’s

a great way to serve as a family! Call Ken Palek at 766-5875 for more information.

The possibilities are endless as to how you can serve others this Holiday season. Not only will you be helping others, it

will help to make the Holidays more meaningful to you and your family. Enjoy yourself and help others!

the winter season.

Make a donation to Festival of Trees!

Dear LakeTown Landing business –

Last year the Moses Lake

Business Association was happy to

support Habitat for Humanity’s Festival

of Trees event by decorating a tree

called “Celebrating LakeTown Landing”.

We used brass ornaments from year’s

past depicting scenes of Moses Lake and

under the tree were items from Lake-

Town Landing businesses.

We still have ornaments left

over and have signed up to once again

decorate a tree to be auctioned off at the

Festival of Trees event happening on

Saturday, December 1st.

We want to once again call the

tree “ Celebrating LakeTown Landing”

and feature some of our 200+ businesses

downtown. Would your business

be willing to supply a gift for under the

tree?

Every business that

participates will get their name

attached to their gift under the

tree as well as mentioned in

the tree’s description and logo

included in the full page ad in

the printed program given to

all attendees.

The Moses Lake Business

Association would appreciate

your support. If you have

something to contribute please

contact Marianne at 764-1745 or

drop it off at the MLBA office at

Desert Plaza (Third & Alder).

Thanks again!
