Mayor Carlo DeMaria is proud to share that the City of Everett has received generous donations for the Holiday Toy Drive Program this week. The community has displayed their generosity in a way that will help many families this holiday season and the City is thankful for these acts of kindness.
“The generosity of the Everett Community is truly remarkable,” said Mayor DeMaria. “The Holiday Toy Drive Program would not exist without donations and I am extremely grateful for the support from residents and local businesses.”
Each year this program helps ensure that all Everett children receive toys during the holiday season regardless of their family income. The City of Everett would like to personally thank those who have been generous to the program this year.

There is still time to make a donation to help those in need this season. The City of Everett has anticipated an increase in applicants for the Holiday Assistance Program this year due to the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Toy donations can be brought to the 1st floor of City Hall or virtual donations may be accepted through the City’s GoFundMe link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/4dkdf-city-of-everett-christmas-toy-drive. Deadline for donations is Monday, December 7, 2020.
