Last week, Redmond’s Youth Eastside Services enjoyed some holiday fun with a free skate session at Redmond Town Center’s Winter Wonderland.

The local nonprofit provides counseling, substance abuse treatment, education and prevention, as well as psychiatric services in east King County to youth ages birth to 22 and their families. They were surprised with the free skate opportunity thanks to Delta Dental of Washington. As a sponsor of Redmond Town Center’s Winter Wonderland, Delta Dental was given a free skate party for their employees, but decided to donate it to local youth and families instead.

“As a first-time sponsor to this yearly community tradition, we really wanted to impact the Redmond residents in a positive way,” stated Kristi Ellefson, public relations and brand manager at Delta Dental of Washington. “And what better way to do so than to involve all members of the community and invite youth in the area that may not get to experience this tradition. We are so impressed by the work Youth Eastside Services is doing to help those in need and we simply wanted to say ‘thank you.’”
