Holiday Party for transitional housing program participants from Community Youth Services!!!

Chami Ro in her trailblazing response to the needs of the community has been able to garner support from local businesses for donations and opened up the Tumwater Comfort Inn to hold the event.

But that's not all. Chami is also owner of the GuestHouse Inn & suites and she has donated space for Capital Kids Connection to run their Christmas Connection Program that provides Christmas gifts to foster children.

Without Chami Ro and the Guest House Inn & Suites located at 1600 74th Ave Sw, Tumwater, Wa 98512 this 9 year program that serves foster youth would have been lost!!!

Chami Ro the woman who saved Christmas!!

Chami is truly an inspirational leader for us to watch. Thanks for your support!

It's Christmas Connection Time!

When we were first told that we had 1 week to move everything out of our location, our first reaction, after the shock wore off, was to get the word out there that we needed help! The fastest way for that is through the local media:

Olympian

KING 5 TV

The Ron & Don Show

Through these resources, we were able to find people to help us move our inventory and to clean out our retail space we had occupied for the last 3 years.

A special thanks to the volunteers on the day of the move, to Mountainview Beverage for lending their truck and employees to help us move, LeMay Inc. for removing our damaged items and other trash from the site and to our storage facility for the generous discount on their largest units.
