On February 14th Richmond Highlands Neighborhood Association and Hillwood Community Network came together as neighbors for our “Share The Love” event to support Tent City 3.

Our two neighborhoods prepared and provided a delicious hot meal, cookies, a carport structure for gathering, several boxes of warm and professional clothing (thank you to NW Mechanical for being a collection site and delivering the goods), hand warmers, toothbrushes, deodorant and $1,116. These cash donations were made to cover arrears for dentures and other dental appliances.

Whidbey Island Bank managed the special account (without fees) collecting donations from neighbors and then seeded the account with $500!

Caring neighbor cash donations comprised the remaining balance.

Our neighborhood volunteers and a City of Shoreline Neighborhood Coordinator joined together at the Masonic Lodge kitchen (generously donated to the neighborhoods for our event) to prepare and cook the dinner we served. One sweet family, with three young daughters brought homemade heart-shaped cookies for the Tent City 3 dessert.

We are also grateful to Sweet Pearl Bakery for providing cheesecake to every resident. Sweet Pearl Bakery will soon open her doors in Richmond Beach!

Richmond Highlands Neighborhood Association and Hillwood Community Network wish to thank everyone who made our “Share The Love” event a wonderful and heart-warming success!
