For more than 30 years, local families have lined up early in the morning to kick off the holiday shopping season at Charles Wright. It‚Äôs not unusual for shoppers to begin arriving around 6a.m. on Saturday morning. Several thousand customers are
expected to pass through the doors by the end of the weekend.
Charles Wright has also donated vouchers for $1,000 in merchandise to Phoenix Housing Network, an emergency and transitional housing program operated by Catholic Community Services of Western Washington. The school hosts the Phoenix Housing Network‚Äôs
shelter for homeless families twice a year.
Goodwill and the YWCA are also partnering with the school to make good use of any goods that are not sold by the close of business on Sunday.
