The Giving Tree 2023

with No Comments

This year's Giving Tree will be in the nave beginning on Thanksgiving Day! As we have in years past, the cathedral will be supporting the children and families of Lowell Elementary, Casa Latina, and Mary's Place.

Choose a tag from the tree, buy a gift, and bring it back to Saint Mark's to be blessed at the altar on Sunday, December 10. (The gifts need to be delivered to Lowell School  before classes end.) You can also order directly from the Lowell School wishlist or the Mary's Place wishlist.

Your generosity means an enormous amount to these families in our community.

If you have questions about the Giving Tree, please contact The Rev. Linzi Stahlecker:

Casa Latina advances the power and well-being of Latino immigrants through employment, education, and community organizing. Saint Mark’s has been in relationship with Casa Latina to be a partner and harbor in times of trouble—and Casa Latina is a teacher and gatherer for Saint Mark’s to share in their efforts supporting families and promoting just immigration policies.

Lowell Elementary School, just down the street from Saint Mark’s, has a student body where over one in four of the children are experiencing homelessness. The school provides basic needs beyond education, and counts on their neighbors to help do it. Saint Mark’s volunteers have deep ties and  relationship with students and the Lowell community.

Take a tag from the tree or give via the Lowell School wishlist.

Mary’s Place provides safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children, and families on their journey out of homelessness. Across seven emergency family shelters in King County, they keep struggling families together, inside, and safe when they have no place else to go, providing resources, housing and employment services, community, and hope. Saint Mark’s provides holiday gifts each year.

Choose a tag from the tree or order from the Mary's Place wishlist.
