While checking in at Nickelsville late this morning, we found Teri Ensley of Furry Faces Foundation with a carload of donations – F3 is working with Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor) to accept and coordinate items including pet food. Just last night, Hotwire’s Lora Swift took this photo with the pile of donations that generous West Seattleites already had brought in:
Hotwire will accept donations at least through this weekend – they’ve just closed for the day but will be open again tomorrow (next to the Junction Post Office, 4410 California SW). The camp still has standing water:
In light of that, and with more storms on the way, Teri told us about one thing that’s needed now at the camp: Storage bins for what’s been donated, to keep it safe from the weather. If you decide to buy some, clear plastic is great so it’s easy to tell what’s inside, but ANYTHING would be gratefully accepted. On behalf of F3, Teri also said they’ve taken a cat from Nickelsville for treatment at South Seattle Veterinary Hospital in Top Hat, and if you’d like to contribute to its bill, you can contact SSVH. An overall wish list from the camp was shared with us last night, and you can see it on the WSB Facebook page.
