Greetings Members and Friends of the West Seattle Democratic Women!


Due to a recent uptick in membership, I would like to give a short background of some of the service work projects that our organization does for the community, so that our new members can get further acquainted with some of the ways we pay it forward to others as well as empowering ourselves:

For many years, the members of the West Seattle Democratic Women have designated their December meeting every year as a service party.  After our regular luncheon served at the West Seattle Golf Course, members collect and bring in sample- and hotel/travel-size items (shampoo/conditioner/lotion, lip balm, tooth brush/& paste, cosmetic samples, perfume samples, spa/facial masks, aromatherapy products, mani-pedi products, and chocolates.  Some of our members have connections with dentists and other businesses in West Seattle and have been able to help collect items we use to fill over 100  bags of goodies, which we then deliver before Christmas to the White Center Food Bank.  With all the members in attendance working together, we usually finish filling all the gift bags with time to spare, and with the time remaining at our get-together, those wishing to participate bring a humorous wrapped gift or something they wish to re-gift (wrapped) and we have a White Elephant (or in our our case a “White Donkey”) gift exchange where we can share some laughs and maybe, if someone is lucky, go home with something they actually want!  Anyone is welcome to attend this festive Holiday-Gathering-to-do-Good, and we’d be thrilled if you have any extra sample- and hotel/travel-size items in your home that you want to bring in to help fill the gift bags!  And only bring a White Donkey gift if you want to participate in the exchange!Date of the West Seattle Democratic Women Holiday Luncheon/Meeting — Thursday, December 22nd
