Bellingham – The Essence of Christmas

It’s Christmas Season 2021 and the pandemic’s shadow has lifted enough to allow Assistance League of Bellingham to approach nine Whatcom County and Bellingham care centers with good cheer and carefully chosen gifts for those without family or friends. It is a season that provokes a multitude of emotions for people, comforting for some and difficult for others. For the Care Center Support group of Assistance League of Bellingham the overwhelming sense is one of caring and hope. And this year in particular, after a struggle of reduced funding due to COVID, we need that caring more than ever.
