Hotwire Online Coffeehouse and Clementine Shoes are accepting cash donations for the Nickelsville ‘Dry Feet Fund’. Monetary donations will be used to purchase rubber boots and warm socks for the residents.
Hotwire is also accepting the following through the weekend:
1. Outerwear, boots, gloves, hats, warm socks
2. Pet Supplies; Dry cat food and litter are especially needed. They have plenty of healthy dog food.
—Some medium priced, good quality food brands are: Costco Kirkland, Dark Purple Bag; Felidade; Nutro; Natural Balance. We try to avoid brands such as Friskies, Whiskas, Atta Cat, Etc.
—Kitty Litter. Clumping is popular however, the 40 lb bags of wood pellets (available at McLendon’s or Home Depot) work very, very well and are only about $4 -$6 per bag.

A big thank you to both of these local businesses and to the West Seattle Community.
And, of course, thanks to F3 for their involvement in this, and to WSB for being the vehicle, and for going above and beyond in helping to get the word out!

Just a little bump to help keep the feet of Nickelsville residents’ dry.November 24, 2012 at 2:02 am #778078November 24, 2012 at 3:53 pm #778079
Today I’ll be taking some stuff to NV that has been collected by some friends, should I use the entrance on the west side or the one on the north?November 24, 2012 at 4:31 pm #778080
Thank you, grog!
Even though it’s a little trickier to get into the parking lot on the west side, it’s safer in the long run, because you can safely get out of your car, and not have all of the semis and other vehicles whizzing by you, as would happen if you parked on the shoulder of the “highway”, at the north entrance.
About the only benefit of the north entrance, is it’s where the main Security Desk is at, which is always staffed.
AFAIK, the west side is still usually staffed, but may not be so on random occasions.
If the west is not staffed, and/or you need a lot of muscle to help unload, the Camp cell number is : 206-450-5268.

The following caring additional businesses are taking collections without any hesitation to help Nicklesville.
The boxes at each location will be in place TFN to see if we can gather items – especially socks and gloves – to stockpile. These items get wet most frequently, but if you have useable batteries, tarps, blankets, jackets, toss them in. Please say thanks when you go in to drop off those unused but usable socks, gloves and hats to:
Zippy’s Burgers (14th Ave. SW off Roxbury)
Southgate Roller Rink (17th Ave SW 1 block so. off Roxbury)
Meander’s Kitchen – (16th Ave. SW 1/2 block so. off Roxbury)
The Locker Room Tavern – (16th Ave SW – next to Meanders)
Uncle Mike’s Barbeque – (16th Ave. SW – across from Meanders)
Smoke Town – (16th Ave. SW – three doors north of Uncle Mike’s)
9216 MMJ Dispensary – (16th Ave. SW – across from Smoke Town
Highland Park Merchants:
Morningstar Deli (corner of Henderson and 9th Aves SW)
Athenas (corner of Holden and 16th Ave. SW)
Thanks to each business owner. And thanks to all who have already donated a little something and to those who will be pitching in over the course of the inclement weather. The little bits add up. So, Happy Holidays.
PS. Teri, my contact is firstname.lastname@example.org. I think that maybe a separate thread should be posted with the current (as of Monday) new list of drop-offs.
WSB, it would be slammin’ if you could post this on home page. I think it is extraordinary that these businesses, some of whom serve street people and Nickleodeans as customers, are reaching out to our larger community to help. I salute them all.November 25, 2012 at 8:14 pm #778083November 25, 2012 at 10:08 pm #778084
Thanks for that list, ‘dood.
And yes, thanks to all who have stepped up to help!
