Cinderella Story

Dear Cinderella’s Trunk,

I wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You!” It’s been about 3 weeks since my daughter went to Homecoming and she is still so happy.

It’s been a hard year for us; both my husband and I worked in the banking world until we were both laid off at the same time at the beginning of the year. He has found a new job, I have not yet. As you can imagine, this makes any extras very difficult to budget. We were dreading telling our daughter that she couldn’t go to Homecoming and possibly not Prom either. Fortunately, your information came out in the PTA newsletter literally just days before we were going to have to tell her.

Speaking as a mom, you have my heartfelt gratitude for making sure my daughter didn’t miss out, thank you for making her so happy.

In Gratitude,
Anne S.

Closed for the Winter Holidays

We had a very busy Homecoming season, as the numbers are tallying up -- it looks like this has been our single busiest season in all 10 years.  If Prom is twice as busy as Homecoming, like past years, we'll surpass 20,000 clients by the end of this school year!  Quite the accomplishment for a small non-profit made up of only volunteers.

We are now closed.  We will re-open in February, we'll post specific dates in January. 

During the time we are closed we get many questions on how to make donations.  There are two ways that we can accept donations at this time. 
  1. First, by mail to our location; when mailing, please be sure not to request signature as people are in the building every day, but they are for many different organizations and would not be able to sign for the Trunk. 
  2. Second, The Ottoman Trading Company at the Country Village in Bothell accepts donations for us during their normal business hours.
Please don't hesitate to leave questions here, or you can call and leave a message at 425-806-7429.

Our mailing address is:
10116 NE 185th St
Bothell, WA  98011


Welcome to our new blog!  We hope you'll come back often.
