One of the key gifts on the Everett Gospel Mission's Angel Tree this year were gift cards. But Christmas isn't the only time the mission, which serves homeless men and families in Snohomish County, can use the cards.
All through the year are birthdays, babies born and other needs that gift cards assist with.
Other year-round donation needs include diapers, razors for shaving, coffee and more. Volunteers are welcome, too.
