Happening now: ‘Stuff the bus’ with Nickelsville donations

More than 100 people who don’t have anywhere to go in from today’s bone-chilling damp cold will benefit from the donation drive that’s culminating today at Merrill Gardens-Admiral Heights – where they’re hoping to “stuff the bus” with items for the people of all ages living at the encampment that calls itself Nickelsville, which moved back to West Seattle (West Marginal Way SW/Highland Park Way SW) last spring. Our Friday update has the newest information on what they’re hoping to collect, with active living manager Nichole overseeing things:

They’re collecting money too – donations are being accepted for coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies right outside the MH entrance, 2326 California SW.

    After carefully examining a few different organizations, I am choosing to donate my money to the Union Gospel Mission and St. Martin de Porres Shelter.

      I am still awaiting a followup report from Nichole. She was taking the donations over late yesterday afternoon but we had to cover something else and couldn’t follow, but she called and said she’d share the info. I’ll check with her tomorrow if I don’t hear from her sooner. – TR
