    TOPS Families,

    The winter months can be challenging for many of our families, especially this year. In December, we offer support for clothing and gifts through our Winter Wishes program. Winter Wishes is not associated with any religion and is for any family experiencing financial hardships.

    Families have requested winter gifts and clothing items for their children. Members of the TOPS community voluntarily sponsor these children. The names of families requesting support are not known to sponsors, and sponsors’ names are not known to participating families.

    The Sign-Up Genius Link to sponsor a family is here:    Winter Wishes SignUp Genius

    If you would like to support a family, below are some notes with timelines and guidance:

    • This is a tabbed document. 
    • Different families are listed on the 12 different tabs.  It is better to view the website on a computer versus a phone.  If using your phone, you have to select the different tabs from a drop down menu at the TOP.
    • Please be sure to document the Family Number and Child Letter for the gift you are purchasing (for example, Family 1, Child A).  
    • If you forget your family number/child letter or can’t find the email, please contact Amy (alschwentor@seattleschools.org) or Kathy (kbhanson@seattleschools.org ).
    • Donors may mail gifts to TOPS or deliver wrapped (unwrapped if indicated on Sign-up Genius) gifts to TOPS by December 14th.  Call the main office ahead of time to coordinate a Drop-off (206-252-3510) 

    Mail gifts to:
    TOPS K8 c/o Amy Schwentor
    2500 Franklin Avenue E
    Seattle, WA 98102

    • Recommendation: gift amounts should not exceed $40/child, plus one clothing item.  There are requests that exceed the recommended gift total.  It is suggested to buy a gift card toward purchase. 
    • Unless specified, we recommend gift cards for Target or Amazon.

    Sincerely,

    Amy L. Schwentor                                                   Kathy B. Hanson
