Eastside Emergency Winter Shelter for Families

Helping Hands

Just two days before a snowy, cold New Year arrived, 10 families were welcomed to spend the nights at St. Peter’s. Pastor Steve was on hand to welcome the visitors and give the blessing for the meal of a hearty chicken soup made by John Fountain. The soup was enjoyed by adults and children alike after they had prepared their sleeping space on mats provided by Catholic Community Services, managers of the shelter.  Gratefully, donations of sheets, clothing, boots and diapers were received. Kasandra Baber was also able to supply appropriate new books which will be given out later. The guests are at our church from 8:30 pm to 7:30 am each night. Please do not leave donations at the church without first informing Pat King by calling the church office 425-747-3210To provide a meal for the Families, click here: Sign Up Genius- Winter Shelter. We are pleased to be able to serve God and the community by sharing our space for the 3 coldest months of the year.
