West Seattle Helpline’s Clothesline expands – coats needed now!

West Seattle Helpline director Anna Fern sends news their Clothesline clothing bank is expanding its services:

The West Seattle Helpline is taking the Clothesline to Seniors. We have partnered with the West Seattle Food Bank to bring some clothing items to their waiting room on Tuesdays just before their distribution. Last Tuesday and yesterday, we gave away sweaters. (Photo above shows Liz, a Helpline volunteer, with the sweaters before we took them down to the Food Bank. Photo below shows a picture of the rack in the Food Bank waiting room after sweaters were selected by Seniors yesterday.)

Then next Tuesday we are going to give away coats. We need extra winter coats in order to have enough for next Tuesday the 20th and the following Tuesday the 27th . … We could use help gathering extra coats. They can drop off coats at the Helpline (6516 35th Ave. SW) during office hours Monday – Friday 7:00 to 8:30 AM or Monday – Thursday 4:30 to 6:30. For other arrangements, call 206.932.4357.

P.S.: As noted earlier today, West Seattle Helpline is the beneficiary of one of the upcoming WS Halloween events – Nightmare on Morgan Street at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) Oct. 29 (here’s the poster).

    We love Helpline, and if you want to bring a coat to us at Coffee At The Heights, 7349 35th Ave SW we will get it delivered to Helpline, and we will give you $1.00 off your drink!

    I want to say thank you so much to COFFEE AT THE HEIGHTS for this help. I work directly with the families you are helping. The HelpLine shopper’s are extremely excited and appreciative when they receive their new coats and clothes. Can you imagine what a boost it is to their self-esteem? I can honestly say you can really feel the love!
