Fishline’s ‘Christmas Child’ program kicks off the holiday season

The holiday season has arrived at Fishline Foodbank and Comprehensive Services.

The nonprofit organization has begun offering its “Christmas Child” program, where it invites the community to join them in making the holidays special for families in North Kitsap and help fulfill Christmas wishes for local children and youth.

The Christmas Child program provides parents an opportunity to list three wishes and three needs on a holiday gift tag. These tags are distributed throughout the community on Giving Trees at local businesses and churches. Shoppers can choose a tag, purchase items from the list and return them unwrapped to the tree where they found the tag.

Fishline then collects and distributes the gifts to the families

Giving Trees go up Monday, Nov. 25 and gifts are due back at their locations on Dec. 9.

Last year nearly 400 children were recipients of holiday gifts through the Christmas Child program. Fishline encourages gifting experiences aligned with the child’s interests and for shoppers to shop locally.
