The Christmas tree is located in the floral department, and a second tree in the bakery department, at QFC in Lynnwood, 7500 196th St. S.W. Both trees are decked with wish lists of children and families in need in the community.
Shoppers or community members are invited to visit the store, take a name from the tree and spread some holiday cheer by purchasing a gift for a neighbor who is struggling to get by this Christmas. Gifts can then be returned to QFC and volunteers from Annie’s Community Kitchen will take charge of delivery.
New or gently used hats, jackets, warm scarves, gloves can also be dropped off in a barrel in the floral department at QFC. These items are be for children or adults.
Santa Claus will also be making a special appearance at QFC this year on Saturday, Dec. 13 from noon-2 p.m. Free photos will be taken of the children with Santa.
