Tent City 4 is still at Woodinville Universal Unitarian Church out on the Woodinville-Duval Rd.
We just got a note from the camp that their commercial coffee pot has died the microwave is on its last leg. This indeed an emergency, the camp runs on coffee and the only way to cook is the microwave oven. About 60% of the residents work and often they are at odd hours, and entail covering the distance by busses. At Woodinville the busses don’t serve the area they are in except normal commute time to normal commute time. Folks get up very early and walk to town to catch a bus or come home after the regular commute and have to walk up from town to the camp. In addition to that, all residents must work a 4 hour security shift and can be assigned any 4 hour shift, day or night. Coffee and hot food help a lot.
If your group or organization can purchase a commercial pot please call Sandra and let her know you are making the donation. They don’t need 20 just one or two. Contact Sandra at 425-823-1629.
