The Kiwanis Club of Tacoma, in concert with Key Clubbers from Lincoln, Stadium and Mt. Tahoma High Schools, host a Christmas Holiday Party for the children at the Tacoma Rescue Mission’s Adams Street Family Campus. The party includes games, gifts, snacks and prizes.  The 2018 Party included a visiting Santa and a balloon man and a new 12-foot Christmas Tree! The Tacoma area, like most urban centers has experienced increasing homelessness in recent years.  In this population a growing percentage are families with children. As many as 36 families, averaging 72 children at a time, call the shelter home.
