Mirror donates holiday gifts to family in need

Gifts help family living in Multi-Service Center shelter.

The Federal Way Mirror staff recently closed their office early so they could shop — for a cause.

The newspaper staff was paired with a local family in need, provided by Multi-Service Center. The team spent an evening shopping for gifts, wrapping them and donating them, along with a gift certificate for groceries, to MSC to deliver to the family for the holidays.

“This was an opportunity to celebrate our involvement in the Federal Way community,” said Cindy Ducich, sales manager. “The people in our community are our greatest asset and we are happy to be able to help a local family.”

Multi-Service Center helps to strengthen communities throughout South King County by addressing the causes and barriers of poverty and homelessness with comprehensive and holistic services that help to lift people from crisis and vulnerability to self-sufficiency and stability.
