MLT Rec. Staff Show Generosity

The City of Mountlake Terrace Recreation staff and families have adopted several families for the Holidays  for the fifth year in a row as part of the city’s holiday gift-giving project.

The Herald has more:

Families with children enrolled in the city’s youth recreation activities – such as preschool and kindergarten readiness classes and before- and after-school programs – volunteered to buy presents for each member of the five families.

The project helps families who might otherwise have a less-than-ideal Christmas, said Darlene Cook, a youth programmer and co-coordinator of the project.

Cook said it also teaches children they can help people their age and those who need help locally.

“It’s a good lesson in sharing,” she said.
