United We Stand encampment in Shoreline

The Shoreline Knitters* (known for their homeless hat, scarf and mitten program) are expanding our community service by serving and providing dinner one night at the United We Stand encampment.

There are two encampments in Shoreline: Tent City 3 at Shoreline Free Methodist Church, 510 NE 175th Street and United We Stand at Richmond Beach Congregational Church, 19545 15 Ave NW.

You can learn how you can participate and help those homeless folks living in tents in our community by checking out their website: Greater Seattle Cares. You can pick a date and get a group together to schedule a meal or provide much needed supplies listed on their web site; such as tents, batteries, paper supplies, ice for their coolers and much more.

If you want some help regarding  how to  organize a dinner, I have lots of experience  orchestrating dinners for tent city, youth care and Mary’s Place and would be happy to get you started. I can be reached by email  

*Shoreline Knitters (a crafty bunch) meet every Thursday from 1:00 to 3:30pm at Café Aroma, NE 165th and 5th Ave Ne near the Crest. We knit and crochet personal and homeless items, a bit of yarn bombing and share our knowledge. Stop by and meet a friendly and welcoming group.
