West Seattle giving: Backpacks For HOPE, to help a hundred

Meet another of your neighbors who’s doing what she can to help people in need. Stephanie Endres created Stephanie’s Lifeline, and organized this afternoon’s Backpacks Bring HOPE event, filling 100 backpacks with basics – first-aid kits, toiletries, some food and beverages. We visited her HQ on Pigeon Point to see the results:

Next step, delivering to the recipients. The slogan on Stephanie’s website: “It’s better to do something small than do nothing at all.” Here’s how to get involved.

    Way to go Stephanie! Thank you. Between Lashanna and Stephanie, I feel like I need to step up my game this season.

    Way to go all of you who quietly go about helping others. We can and do make a difference

    This is the most REAL social change. This makes an actual difference in people’s lives. Too bad too many think the answer isn’t action like this. Change is incremental and small. Protesters pretending violence and mayhem help actually get us all nowhere. Stephanie is amazing. Way to be!
