The Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo has begun its 14th year of service in support of Cocoon House in Everett.

The club provides dinners and supplies to the youth housed at Cocoon House.

This year, at the Cocoon House Christmas party and dinner, 25 grateful kids received gift bags. Club members provided the gift bags, which were filled with socks, scarves, movie tickets, McDonald’s gift cards and more.

Club members hosted a Cocoon house dinner for the teens Jan. 8. Pam and Tim Taylor, Nancy Passovoy, Gary Webster, and Wendy and Marty Eibdo provided dinner for 18 kids and several staff members.

Cocoon House director, Cassie Franklin, recently spoke at a club meeting about the non-profit’s new capital project to double its capacity. A new facility at 36th Street and Colby Ave. would be built and would include a counseling center as well as other resources for homeless and at-risk youth, all under one roof.

The club’s mission has always been to support the children of our community and the world. For 25 years, Cocoon House has provided outreach, prevention and housing for children under 18.

The Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo meets 7:30 a.m. on Wednesdays at the Harbour Pointe Golf Club. Once a month, the club meets at 6:30 p.m. at Jimmy Mac’s at 11731 Airport Road in Everett.
