West Seattle Helpline sends word that your chance to help them help neighbors in need is just a few weeks away: The annual dinner event benefiting the Helpline is 6:30 pm Friday, November 15th, at the Duwamish Longhouse in West Seattle. As explained on the invitation:
The West Seattle Helpline supports over 3,500 residents each year by providing one-time emergency financial assistance. This may be due to unemployment, health crisis, or time of transition. We also refer our neighbors to community resources that may help them get back on their feet. For more than 24 years, the West Seattle Helpline has assisted the working poor in West Seattle. Despite these efforts, we must turn away families every month and the need continues to rise.
The 4th Annual Fall Fundraiser Dinner will help families meet basic needs by providing for rent and utility assistance, clothing and bus tickets. By joining us, you will directly impact the lives of those less fortunate in our community. Your contribution will directly support local families in need.
Individual tickets are $80 and on sale online right now – just go here.
