Kurt Campbell presents the keys to
Pastor Kelle Brown

Thanks to the generous donation of a new Nissan cargo van, Mary’s Place, a Seattle based charity that empowers homeless women and children to reclaim their lives, is now able to provide delivery of 20,000+ meals from their central kitchen to distribution points throughout the greater King County area.

“Prior to this, we had to rely on the organizations that directly provided shelter to either come get the food, or pay someone to bring the food where it was needed” cites Marty Hartman, executive director of Mary’s Place.  “Having a van allows us to now self transport the food to the women and families that need it”.  

In addition to daily food runs, the new Nissan cargo van will also be used to transport bedding, linens and belongings to the various locations that provide nightly shelter.  “We are so very grateful to Campbell Nelson for this generous donation.” This will directly result in more locations being able to accommodate and help those that need it.

Keys to the new brightly decorated van were presented to Mary’s Place on August 7 at Campbell Nelson Nissan, 24325 Highway 99, Edmonds, WA 98026.
