Vine Maple Place aims to end homelessness in South King County.
Each year the Nist Family Fund selects a non-profit organization to support.
The 2019 Christmas Giving and 2020 STB Golf Tournament recipient chosen was Vine Maple Place; an organization whose mission is to assist families in crisis by helping single parents and their children build lives of safety, stability, and greater economic sufficiency.
In December 2019, Seattle-Tacoma Box Company supported Vine Maple Place for our Christmas Giving. Vine Maple Place utilizes a unique and innovative approach to meet the needs of homeless families. Recognizing that there is a path that leads to homelessness, we strive to meet families wherever they are in their crisis, toxic stress, and trauma. As a team, parents, volunteers, and staff work collaboratively to implement a custom action plan that emphasizes each family members’ strengths, assets, and challenges.

STB employees donated a total of 30 gift cards for basic needs assistance, along with 6 warm coats, 1 pair of winter boots, and 14 towels, and over $1,000 in direct financial donations!
The company matched each gift card donation with a $25 donation and matched payroll deductions dollar for dollar! The total STB donation was over $1,750. More good news, a third-party donor to Vine Maple Place also matched all donations made during December so all of our contributions were tripled in impact!
