Originally published on December 24, 2018 by HeraldNet

Staff from The Everett Clinic held a donation drive that filled six cargo vans full of toys, clothing, shoes and “family fun baskets” to benefit children served by Hand in Hand, an Everett nonprofit that offers foster care support.

The gifts were used at Hand in Hand’s annual Foster Family Christmas Party to honor foster, adoptive and relative caregivers in Snohomish County. Over 600 children were served.

Other donors included the Make A Change Foundation, the Imagine Children’s Museum, Elle Marie Hair Studios, Washington State Patrol District 7, American Girl Alderwood, Avocados Mexican Restaurant and Accent & Interiors.
