Helpline House Holiday Book Nook

The Helpline House Holiday Book Nook is held in December. Households we serve with children ages 1 - 12 can choose new books -- the gift that keeps on giving.

Book donations accepted November 28 - December 13. The Book Nook will be open on December 14 and 15.

Signups for the Book Nook begin November 28 through December 13.

If your household or one of your neighbors is in need of assistance, confidential help is available at HELPLINE HOUSE. Please visit our office Monday - Friday from 9am to 5pm or call us at 206-842-7621.

Food Bank Needs

The Helpline food bank appreciates "festive" foods and baking ingredients during the holiday season. Basic foods are always welcome, regardless of the season. Donations are accepted weekdays except Wednesdays, 10:00AM to 4:00PM. Please call 206.842.7621 if you have a large donation exceeding more than a couple boxes, or containing perishables.
