Other Events

Throughout the year, you can find ways to support or be supported at the Empowerment Center through our fundraising and giving events.

Our annual holiday meals drive and distribution is especially dear to us. Please consider donating or volunteering to support our ability to provide complete holiday meals for families experiencing food insecurity.

Support our Holiday Meals Drive

Each year we raise funds to buy special items to add to our donated food boxes such as turkeys, hams, cranberry sauce, etc. Our goal is to create large, complete holiday meals for families experiencing food insecurity. Use our donation form or select “Holiday Meals” from the drop-down when making an online donation if you’d like to donate to this program.

We need extra volunteers during the holidays to build these beautiful meal boxes and provide additional distribution dates. Volunteers get to take home a holiday meal too! Give us a call at 253-677-7740 if you’d like to join in the festivities of holiday meal creation and distribution.
