Although the PSO Bluebills will not hold their usual Christmas Social this December, they will again coordinate a Christmas gift drive for the homeless families of Olympic Community Action Program (OlyCAP). OlyCAP is sponsoring 28 children this year, ranging in age from 0 to 18.
Pam Kozora, housing manager for OlyCAP, said they are seeing more homeless families than before, and they welcome the support of PSO Bluebills as well as the Port Ludlow community. Last year, that support amounted to more than $2,000 and resulted in gifts for 20 kids who were being housed by OlyCAP.
Once this year’s cash donations are collected, PSO Bluebills shoppers will buy age-appropriate gifts for each of the 28 kids designated by OlyCAP. The Bluebills will deliver wrapped gifts on December 17 to OlyCAP for distribution.
Both organizations are requesting help to give children hope for the holiday season. Checks can be made out to PSO Bluebills and mailed by December 2 to:
52 Bayside Court
Port Ludlow, WA 98365.
