Help Cheerful Givers prepare gift bags for tots Nov. 7

Cheerful Givers, the nonprofit group that provides toy-filled birthday bags to low-income children, is having a gift bag-assembling event on Nov. 7 and is looking for volunteers.

The group invites helpers to gather from 3 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Redmond Regional Library, 15990 NE 85th. There they will spend an hour putting toys in bags, tying and curling ribbon and adding stickers. The gift bags will be distributed to children ages 3-12 in families served by Hopelink.

The event will mark Cheerful Givers’ fourth anniversary in the area and bring its overall total of gift bags to 4,700.

An RSVP is requested, by contacting Cheerful Givers coordinator Briana Keller at briana@cheerfulgivers.org or by phone at 206-618-5215.
