Families in Need

The Tumwater Holiday Program serves children who reside in the City Of Tumwater or who attend Tumwater School District schools.

Families in need with school age children can pick up an application from their Tumwater School District School.  We ask that all applications have a signature of a school staff member, typically your school counselor.  All applications must be returned to the school prior to Friday November 16th.  NO LATE APPLICATIONS CAN BE ACCEPTED due to the fact we may not be able to secure donations for your family if the application is late. 

Families in need who have children younger than school age can pick up an application at Tumwater City Hall and return the application to Tumwater City Hall prior to Friday November 16th. 

The program provides at least one gift per child.  

In the past we have provided a gift certificate for a holiday meal.  Due to the increase in families needing assistance, unless community donations allow, we will not be providing a gift certificate for a holiday meal.   The Thurston County Food Bank works in partnership with the Tumwater Fire Department.  Advanced registration is required CALL 754-4170.  More info is on the Tumwater Fire Department's website.
