Idea 15: Donate a Family Outing

Take a moment to think back to when you were a child. Everything was so new, so vivid. Think about trips to the zoo or going to the museum with your family. How about going to a baseball game or the IMAX? These experiences are priceless and can be expensive for families struggling with homelessness.

Now you can be a part of giving these types of unique experiences. Consider donating theatre tickets, zoo tickets, museum tickets, or sporting event tickets you can help impact a child’s life forever plus inspire hobbies or even careers. Many of our families would otherwise not be able to afford the opportunity.

This is the perfect gift to do with a group of your friends -- or check with your employer to see if they have tickets to donate.

The suggested donation for this gift is: 2 adult tickets, 4 kid tickets. The two perfect compliments to your gift would be bus tickets and a gift card for a meal.

If you have questions about donating tickets contact Lisa Foss at 206 323 6715 or lfoss@firstplaceschool.org
