Sinfinite and SOSea team up with Fiat of Seattle at Southcenter and Baltic Room to spread holiday cheer

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Social Outreach Seattle (SOSea), the organization that I am founder and president of, is rooted in helping others. We do this by raising both awareness and money for causes that the community tells us are important to us all. During the holiday season, millions of Americans go without. They go without food, shelter, medicine and more. While American consumerism reaches an all-time high - even on years as bad as the Great Recession of 2008 to 2010 - they are forgotten.

They aren't forgotten by everyone, however. And within our capitalist society, not everyone subscribes to the notion of 'take only, never give.' SOSea is proud to announce that we've teamed up with Fiat of Seattle at Southcenter and Sinfinite Events for Fiat of Seattle at Southcenter's Holiday Drive on December 14 from noon to 5 p.m. at Baltic Room (1207 Pine St.).

'Stop by and test drive a Fiat this Saturday at our pop-up location near Melrose and Pine on Capitol Hill and Fiat of Southcenter will donate $25 to YouthCare/Orion Center, SOSea or PAWS, in your name. You choose which charity will be the beneficiary,' said Sinfinite Productions in a press release.

'In addition to the test drive, we will be collecting gifts for the YouthCare holiday gift drive,' said Sinfinite. 'These gifts will help homeless youth in one of the toughest times of the year. Nearly 40% of the homeless youth age 12-24 who seek help from YouthCare identify as LGBT.'

Suggested gifts include (*any size): gift cards, new jeans & Carhartt work pants*, new boots and sneakers*, new socks and underwear*, hats, gloves & scarves*, coats*, fleece hoodies*, belts*, sleeping bags, backpacks, twin-size sheets and comforters, Mp3 players, headphones and earbuds, sleeping bags, backpacks, make-up & nail polish, art supplies, African-American hair care products, dish sets, bath towels, kitchen appliances.

Also, throughout the hours of this event, be sure to pop inside The Baltic Room for even more holiday cheer!

Get your photos taken with Santa benefiting PAWS, holiday gift-wrapping benefiting Social Outreach Seattle, and coffee, tea, and treats will be available from Bauhaus Coffee.

And in the evening from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., stop by Baltic Room for a hosted bar holiday cocktail reception from Fiat of Seattle as a special thank you to everyone who test-drives or donates a gift throughout the day. Music will be provided by DJ Bret Law. All are welcome to attend; however, only the people who test drove a Fiat can benefit from the hosted bar service.
