Tent City 4 Wish List for May
We are in dire need of Blanket Donations
We would also appreciate any individual or groups efforts to help launder blankets, small amounts at a time or large amounts if a group could help, at this time. Please contact us at camp to make arrangements; our number is (206) 618-3901.
If by any chance there are agencies with commercial washer and dryer available to wash blankets for our camp and/or temporary use be donated to Tent City 4, The Camp stands ready to work with folks, for there are capable people to use and maintain space of said equipment. Please contact us at TC4@sharewheel.org or forward contact information to interested parties.
We thank you in advance for your support of TC4
To donate items take them directly to the camp at any time. The camp security can take items 24/7. The pantry looks pretty empty. There are about 50 residents in camp that means about 120 cups, bowls and or plates a day. Each person must cook their own breakfast and lunch each day. Health Department does not allow the camp to prepare their own meals as a group. They have one refrigerator and a small freezer, a microwave (that needs replacing) two coffee pots and a toaster. Donations of food need to be in single serving sizes except those items listed below. Please remember if it can’t be just heated up in a microwave they probably can’t use it.
One hot meal is provided each night at 6pm by churches, businesses and organizations. The Tent City4 web site gives information on how to sign up to provide a meal.
About 60% of the residents work part or full time. They just don’t earn enough for an apartment, car, gas, medication, and food. They may work as temporary employees and will be leaving the camp as soon as they are hired on a permanent basis. Without a permanent job you can’t rent an apartment. Many work odd shifts and are not in camp for the hot meal.
