WE DID IT!
Thanks you YOU, our crowdfunding campaign to make sure No Child Sleeps Outside this Winter in Seattle EXCEEDED our goal and raised more than $300,000 to provide emergency shelter and services to homeless moms, dads, and kids this winter. The season is truly merry and bright for our homeless families!
A big thank you to our incredible sponsors: Dick’s Drive-In, evo, Vulcan Inc., the Space Needle/Seattle Hospitality Group, Evolution Projects, Windermere Foundation, and the Harrelson family, who came together a month ago to make a difference in the lives of more than 500 families who sleep in cars, bus stations, and doorways at night. Together, they created a movement, and inspired a community.
The money we’ve raised is already at work helping us to move families out of homelessness, into shelter and on their way to permanent housing. We are moving forward to open an additional winter emergency night shelter; watch for more news about this new facility in the New Year.
Contributions to the crowdfunding campaign are still coming in, it’s not too late to participate!
Thank you for your support and love.
From our Mary’s Place family to yours, Happy Holidays!
