The Lynnwood Event Center is proud to announce the return of its beloved November tradition, Caring Hearts Month. This month-long celebration is a testament to our commitment to giving back to our community, recognizing the contributions of our nonprofit partners, and extending a helping hand to those in need.
Caring Hearts Month will feature an array of events and activities aimed at making a positive impact in our community. Highlights include:
- Food Drive for the Lynnwood Food Bank: Join us in our effort to support the Lynnwood Food Bank by dropping off non-perishable food items in the main lobby of the Lynnwood Event Center during our standard business hours (Monday-Friday between 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) or when we have events on evenings and weekends. The Lynnwood Food Bank serves low-income families and distributes over 1.3 million pounds of food annually. For most needed items to donate, please visit lynnwoodfoodbank.org
- Staff Volunteer Day: Our staff will spend a day volunteering at PAWS, a local animal shelter, assisting with improving the property and lending a helping hand to our furry friends in need. We will also be collecting donations for the entirety of November from PAWS’ online wish list, which can be found at paws.org/donate/wish-list/
- Veterans Day Luncheon and Service Fair: On Nov. 10, The District will host “Heroes Among Us” in partnership with the City of Lynnwood, held at the Lynnwood Event Center. This special luncheon and service fair will honor our veterans and provide valuable resources to those who have served our nation. To register for this free event, please visit https://ilovelynnwood.com/heroes-among-us/
- Community Outreach: We will be delivering breakfast pastries to the staff and guests at the Lynnwood Senior Center in order to brighten spirits and spread neighborly cheer.
Additionally, during Caring Hearts Month, we’ll be showcasing several of our nonprofit clients on our social media platforms. This serves as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the remarkable work these groups are accomplishing in our community.
“Caring Hearts Month is a testament to the incredible spirit of our team,” said Erin Jepson, General Manager of the Lynnwood Event Center. “This initiative reminds us that our greatest strengths lie not just in the events we host, but in the empathy and compassion we share.”
The Lynnwood Event Center is owned by The District and operated by OVG360, a division of Oak View Group.
