West Seattle scene: Girl Scouts’ gift to encampment

Sheryl shared the photo, along with this report:

Girl Scout Troop 40766 donated a check for $100 to Tent City ["Nickelsville"]. The money was raised last year through cookie sales. Because there is no electricity or running water at Tent City, the girls decided to contribute money toward their expenses. Nickelsville residents pay over $1600 a month just for portable toilets and sanitation.

The girls encourage anyone to also help contribute. Checks can be made out to Nickelsville and mailed to 3229 Harbor Ave SW Seattle, WA 98126. The girls will personally deliver your checks. All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for caring about our neighbors in need.

  1. I was a Girl Scout in the late 1960″s. Part of the Girl Scout pledge is “to help other people at all times”. Well done troop 40766!

  2. This was a very sweet and generous act of kindness.
    I wonder if it’s true that the Nickelsville residents come up with $1600 per month for the toilets?

  5. doghouse, through the generous donations of friends and supporters, Nickelsville manages to come up with the $1600.00 for the Honeybuckets, and about another $3400.00 for the dumpster, but often just barely…
