Light a light for youth fund

Nov 21, 2013
Holiday fare

In the spirit of giving, light a light this holiday season for someone you love, something you wish for, or in remembrance of a loved one.

Each light you light is a donation to the City of Edmonds Youth Scholarship Fund that enables Edmonds’ children to participate in Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services programs who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity.

A living fir tree is strung with lights and placed at the entrance of the Frances Anderson Center.  Donate $5 per light, and they’ll note your donation on the main floor bulletin board of the Frances Anderson Center.

The living fir tree will be lit the week of Thanksgiving through Jan. 2, 2014.  After the holidays, this tree will be planted in the interior of Pine Ridge Park.

Each year, the City of Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department receives numerous requests for assistance and provides about $3,500 in scholarships.  The Celebration of Lights program has raised $11,245 for the Youth Scholarship Fund.

To light a light, call 425-771-0230 and they will send you a form, or stop by the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St., Edmonds.
