Give to one of these Seattle charities on Giving Tuesday, December 3

Nov 27 2019, 9:00 am

As the holidays draw near, we’re used to seeing pricey light displays, buying seasonal drinks, and hanging out with family and friends. We often focus on purchasing material things such as gifts for those on our lists and clothing for the oncoming seasonal parties. It’s easy to forget the true meaning of the holidays: to be grateful for everything that we have and to show gratitude to those around us.

Take some time this giving Tuesday, December 3, to help the lesser fortunate by volunteering at or donating to one of these life-saving local charities.

Youth Care’s mission is to end youth homelessness while ensuring that young people are valued for who they are and empowered to achieve their potential. The simplest method to help Youth Care is to Fulfill a Wish. Purchase a gift listed online for a child that would otherwise lack a holiday gift. Look online for other ways to help, such as spending time volunteering to support youth or serving meals.

The group conducts impact-litigation work to help fight racial profiling by border patrol officials, secures the right to an attorney for mentally ill immigrants facing deportation, and ensures that immigrants are considered for conditional parole from detention when they qualify. They also offer direct legal services and host training and presentations for immigrants. The project also aims to offer asylum and protect children and survivors of domestic violence and other crimes. Help out by volunteering or donating online.
