Tent City 4 is in need of your help!

Tent City 4 is in process of working with a new service provider for the cleaning of our camp blankets every week, this may take some time. We, however, have new camper’s arriving daily that need clean blankets upon admittance. We need help quick short term help with providing clean blankets to meet this critical need.

What you can do to help Tent City 4:

Help us by cleaning any number of blankets you can from as few as 4 to as many as you may like. The camp will be able to launder up to 600 Blankets a week in the near future but for now each new camper needs just four blankets to stay warm, dry and safe. Please use our TC4 Blanket Laundry Pledge Form (see reverse side) for the easiest way to help immediately.

For more information/queries on how to help or other concerns please contact our Tent City Organizer Marvin Futrell III at (206) 448-7889 or TC4@SHAREWHEEL.ORG

Ways to Help Tent City 4

  • Raise funds or make a cash donation - SHARE/WHEEL spends over $5000 per month on Honey Buckets, dumpsters, bus passes, and other administration.  Tent City 4 does not receive any government or municipal funding for its operations.  Allowing us to provide a clean and sanitary shelter relies on donations from local communities.

    Monetary donations can be sent to our office or dropped off at the camp location anytime.  Checks should be made payable to SHARE.  Donations can also be made online via Paypal.
