Mark your calendar for December 9th at PUD Headquarters in Everett.

A reminder that a favorite Holiday tradition in Everett, Washington will be back on December 9th. The Snohomish PUD’s Helping Hands Holiday Bazaar will take place on Friday December 9th at the Headquarters Building at 2320 California Street east of downtown Everett. Here’s more.

Snohomish County PUD is hosting a holiday light exchange and craft bazaar at its headquarters in downtown Everett on Friday, Dec. 9 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Holiday Bazaar, which raises money to assist senior citizens with their bills, will be located in the lobby and the lighting exchange in a nearby conference room.

The PUD’s annual Helping Hands Holiday Bazaar took a brief hiatus due to COVID but is back in 2022. The bazaar features a large array of handmade gifts and goodies from PUD employees and other community members, as well as food and other household items. The bazaar helps raise money for Helping Hands, which directly assists low-income seniors with their electric bills.

Helping Hands is an employee-funded and employee-run program focused on assisting low-income customers 65 and older with grants toward their PUD bill. Started by PUD employees in 1987, Helping Hands distributes about $10,000 a year to customers.

In addition, the PUD is helping customers recycle old strands of holiday lights. Customers can bring old lights or a food donation for local food banks to the PUD in exchange for up to three strands of holiday lights per person, while supplies last.
