Women Helping Women: Shoreline “Sleep-Out” again turning tents into homes

Thursday, August 30, 2012

The 2010 Sleep Out raised $18,000
The 2012 fundraising goal is $25,000

Friday, Sept 21, 7pm to Saturday, Sept 22, 8am 

Shoreline Covenant Church, 1330 N 185th St, Shoreline, 206-542-1050

Women and friends of Shoreline Covenant Church are turning tents into homes for women and children in Shoreline by raising money to buy interior paint for Jacob's Well, a transitional housing complex being constructed by Vision-House for homeless women and children. 

Bring your tent and pledges from friends, neighbors, family and co-workers and spend one night in solidarity with our sisters who struggle every night to find a safe and dry and warm place to sleep with their kids. We will end on Saturday morning with breakfast served at 8am! Contact the church by September 17th to register.

This challenge was last done in 2010 when 43 women slept out in tents in the Shoreline Covenant Church parking lot and raised over $18,000 to purchase lumber for the framing of Jacob’s Well. 

We will again "sleep-out" in our tents in the church parking lot with the hope of raising, through pledges, the $25,000 needed to purchase the interior paint for Jacob’s Well. 

We already have one donor willing to match each dollar up to $3,000 and each woman who participates must raise a minimum of $100. 

Shoreline Covenant will (so far) be joined by women from Mars Hill, Lake Forest Park Presbyterian Church, and The Shoreline Vineyard in this effort. If women from any other churches would like to also join, contact Erika Haub immediately at 206-542-1050 or email her.  

You can pledge $30 toward a gallon of paint or you can make a flat donation in any amount. Write checks to Shoreline Covenant Church, note “Shoreline Sleep-Out” in the memo line. Donate online and make a note in the comments field with “Shoreline Sleep-Out”and the “woman’s name” with whom you are pledging.

Questions? Call Pastor Erika at 206-542-1050 or email her. 

Together we can help some of our most hidden and vulnerable homeless: moms and kids.
