Since 1986, Holiday House has helped provide gifts and food to Clover Park Technical College students and their families. The first year provided 25 families with food for the holidays; over the years, Holiday House has grown from shopping in bulk, to providing gift cards and toys to more than 80 families a year.
Donated gifts and funds for Holiday House directly support the children of students who are attending school to make a better future for their family. The direct impact of this project has helped 3,874 children, and generated $248,050 in support for 2,087 families of students over the past 31 years.
Each year, the CPTC Foundation and the Holiday Helpers committee reach out to local businesses and community members to see if they might be willing to donate items for raffle/auction prizes to help fundraise for our annual Holiday House campaign. In addition, the Holiday Helpers committee seeks businesses and community members willing to sponsor a family with gift cards and gifts for the holiday season.
Although Holiday House is held in late November/early December, we try to reach out in advance so that business owners have time to send in their tax deductible donations prior to the start of the holiday season.
Your support will help students and their families during the holiday season with meals and gifts. Without the support of individuals like yourself, our students may feel forgotten in the challenges they are experienceing balancing college and its financial costs. Please help our students have a special holiday this year.
Donations made to Clover Park Technical College Foundation, a local non-profit organization that supports CPTC are tax deductible. Please consider supporting Holiday House, as our community is the heart of our Foundation. Donations of cash, gift card or prize can be sent to the CPTC Foundation. Prizes will be used to raffle off at our holiday fundraiser to help raise additional funds for Holiday House. Cash and gift cards will be used to provide holiday gifts/gift cards for students and their children. Please download our non-cash donation form below.
Suggested Donation Items:
- Gift cards to Target, Walmart or a Visa Gift card.
