While a tragedy like this at any time is horrible, at Christmas time, it is especially devastating. In an effort to help brighten their holiday, some family friends looked to our community for help. The response was fantastic; many local restaurants and stores helped out.
We would like to thank the following merchants for their donations: Home Depot, Ernie's Toys, From the Heart, The Woodinville Cafe, Jose's, Las Margaritas, Cherry Blossom, Big Foot Bagels, QFC, and the Ark Pet Store.
At such a difficult time for the family, it was heartwarming to see how wonderful our community is. Many thanks to all of those merchants and to all of the friends of the family who helped out.
Jim and Lisa Dobbin, Woodinville
