Our organization often is asked what we need most to help our clients.
Right now we are running really low on gift cards. These are the emergency funds we use when someone walks in off the street and has nowhere to stay, no food, no gas left in their car, etc.
What we really need are Fred Meyer, Safeway, Arco gas cards, and Walmart cards in $20-$25 denominations.
We can only take 13 families in the shelter at a time. All the others (thousands of people each year), need more immediate help to get by until they can meet with advocates and form a safety plan.
If you are able to help, you would literally be helping someone survive. Gift Card donations can be dropped off at our office at 221 W. Gowe Street in Kent. Or mailed to: DAWN, P.O. Box 1449, Kent WA 98035
