YOU CAN HELP: Spring at the shelter

(WSB photo, December 2023)

West Seattle’s only emergency shelter – powered by donations and volunteers – is moving into spring mode. Its manager Keith Hughes sent a list of its current needs:

I want to thank the West Seattle Community for their generous and continuous support of our efforts to make a difference in the lives of those experiencing Homelessness in the West Seattle community.

For the springtime we are running the Morning Warm-Up Center every day from 7:30 am to 10 am, with breakfast, shower, and laundry available. Our current needs to sustain this effort are:

Regular oatmeal, instant oatmeal, instant hot chocolate, pancake mix, pancake syrup, cornbread mix, tea bags, 12-ounce hot cups (paper, no lids please), regular paper napkins, laundry detergent pods, toilet paper, paper towels.

You can take donations to the shelter at 3618 SW Alaska.

      This shelter is not run by an agency.  It is run by one wonderful man who created a shelter because he saw a need.  He relies on donations and volunteers.  Numerous posts on this blog about him and the shelter if you want to learn more.
