Events in Everett, Everett

The folks at Lombardi’s are teaming up again during the holidays at Cocoon House to help at-risk and homeless youth. Here’s more about the program and how you can help from Julio Cortes at Cocoon House…

Cocoon House

Take a tag off the giving tree inside Lombardi’s and give a gift to a Cocoon House teen.

Lombardi’s Restaurants invite you to participate in their second annual “Adopt a Cocoon House Teen” this holiday season. Lombardi’s Restaurants in Everett and Mill Creek and Cocoon House need community support to bring holiday cheer to at-risk and homeless youth. At each restaurant guests will find a Cocoon House giving tree full of gift tags with the names and wish lists of homeless youth working with and living at Cocoon House. Participating guests will select a gift tag, purchase a gift from the teen’s wish list and then return it to the restaurant by Sunday, December 20th so gifts can be delivered to Cocoon House shelters!

Each holiday season Cocoon House provides the holidays to over 200 at-risk and homeless young people. This is made possible by generous community support. By “Adopting a Teen” and selecting a gift tag you can help bring joy to teens going through difficult times. Teens in Cocoon House programs will receive your gifts and know how much their community cares about them.

Lombardi’s will continue spreading holiday cheer when they host a Christmas Day dinner on December 25th for the less fortunate in their Everett location from 11 am to 2 pm. The full dinner will provide a little holiday cheer to those less fortunate going through a difficult time.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Everett community, helping homeless teens and providing hope and promise for their futures,” says Kerri Lonergan-Dreke, Lombardi’s Proprietor.
