Tent city 4 is now located at Temple B’Nai Torah.
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.
After a temporary stay in Lake Sammamish State Park TC-4 was accepted by the congregation at Faith United Methodist Church in the Klahanie area.
Special thanks to the State of WA for letting the encampment reside on state land while we found a much needed host.

Tent City4 is still at St. John Vianney, and they still need supplies. There are now about 40 residents at that site. At least for now we have 2 tent cities on the Eastside to support. They are very low on supplies.
