Family Services

Holiday Baskets program serves 512 families! 

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Shoreline PTA Council, Dale Turner YMCA, City of Shoreline, Shoreline and Lake Forest Park Rotaries, Hopelink and the Shoreline Fire Department, we were able to provide holiday gift and food support to 512 families, which included 1199 children.  We appreciate all of the community support in the form of donations and volunteer time that helped make this program a success! We’ll see you next year. 

You Can Donate to The Works All Year Long!

​The WORKS clothing room provides high quality, clean, gently used children’s and teen clothing to Shoreline School District families. Shoreline families experiencing economic hardship can bring their children to “shop” for gently used, stylish clothing and receive new underwear, socks and hygiene products.

Typically the PTA collects items that our families have donated to the “closet” in the main school hallway and delivers them. Due to the school being closed to outside individuals, that isn’t an option. Instead, clothes can be dropped off at The Works any Wednesday between 6:30 and 8:00 p.m.

The Shoreline PTA Council 6.12 is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Your donations may be tax deductible. Please talk with a tax professional. The WORKS is located at Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155
(closest crossroads NE 185th and 1st NE)

You may also email Jill Steinberg, Works Chair () to schedule another drop-off time.

We ask that clothing donations be in kid sizes 4T – 16 or adult sizes XS – 3XL and be appropriate for middle and high school students. Clothing should be in great condition with no holes or stains.

For more complete details and location information, visit The Works. Thank you!

Does Your Family Want to Shop at The Works?

Due to COVID-19, shopping at The WORKS is by appointment only. Here is the sign up for upcoming appointments. When visiting The WORKS, please wear a face covering and leave your children at home. We will only allow two adults from each family to enter so that we can maintain appropriate social distancing. We apologize for this inconvenience. We kindly ask that each family only sign up once per month so that other families will have the opportunity to shop for much-needed items. Please keep checking back for additional appointment dates!

If you have questions, please email or leave a message on our info line (206) 393-4916. The WORKS is located at 18560 1st Avenue NE, on the north side of the Shoreline Center. We look forward to seeing you!
