Deadline approaches for donations to the Ferndale Holiday Giving Store

Ferndale Holiday Giving Store organizers say nearly 500 local needy children have been enrolled this year but donations have been coming in slower compared to past years.

The Ferndale Holiday Giving Store program, a service of Ferndale Community Service Cooperative, began in 2003 to brighten the holidays for children of low income families. Working with the Ferndale School District, the program enables needy families to register to shop for free gifts. They select gifts to take home to share with their children during the holidays.

Items to be donated should be unwrapped and left in Holiday Giving Store drop-off boxes at the locations listed below. Donations will be accepted through Monday, December 18th.

* Whatcom Education Credit Union
* Ferndale Grocery Outlet
* North Coast Credit Union
* Ferndale Woods Coffee
* The Locker Room
* Ferndale City Hall
* Mt Baker Lanes
* Key Bank
* Premier Dental
* Gym Star Sports Center
