Mission to SeafarersEvery year, the Seattle Seafarers' Center provides about 1,000 ditty bags stuffed with
basic personal necessities to merchant seafarers. These bags are one way we help
seafarers celebrate Christmas while they are far from home during the holiday season.
Seafarers help make Christmas possible by transporting lots of stuff to the US. Help
make a seafarer's Christmas by providing them with a ditty bag to say thank you!
There are lots of ways to participate.
- make drawstring bags (link has specific size needed)
- knit hats
- purchase basic supplies (e.g., body soap, deodorant, and toothpaste)
- make a financial gift that will be used to purchase more supplies for ditty bags.
