Mary's Place Launches "No Child Sleeps Outside" Crowdfunding Campaign

Did you know that it costs just $14 to bring a child inside to warmth and safety for a night at Mary's Place? 

Tonight, 1,900 families, mostly single mothers and children, are sleeping outside in cars, tents, and doorways. The weather has turned cold, wet, and dark. These families have no safe place to sleep this winter. Thanks to the Northshore Community and the success of last year's campaign, 80 moms, dads and kids are safe and warm at night in our new shelter - but we need to do more!
The 2017 campaign has started and runs through December 31 with a goal to raise $1.5 million and enable Mary's Place to bring 800 additional kids and families inside and more than 300 families into permanent housing. Anyone can help ensure that No Child Sleeps Outside this winter just by going to www.NoChildSleepsOutside.org from any mobile device or computer to make a donation. You can help! Start a team page and encourage your employees to help them meet the goal of $1.5 million by the end of the year!

Host A Holiday Giving Tree For Homeward Pet Adoption Center

Join  Homeward Pet Adoption Center this holiday season by hosting a Holiday Giving Tree at your place of business - an easy way to help feed hundreds of hungry pets and help keep needy families' pets in their homes.

Donations raised help stock supplies in their shelter and help families in need keep their beloved pet in their home by distributing pet food to needy families in our community. It's another way they help reduce pet homelessness.

Homeward Pet will provide you with hang-able tree ornaments with suggested items that help in the care of the dogs and cats in the shelter. You can display the tags as ornaments on your giving tree in a common space, or do something new and creative with them that inspires the holiday spirit.   If you are interested in learning more or organizing a Holiday Giving Tree, please contact: Lindsay Roe, Event Manager at: Lindsay@homewardpet.org or 425-488-4444 ext. 4015
