Helping Hands in March 2017

Instead of having a meeting on March 15, 2017, participants in Helping Hands will attend the Eucharist and Brown Bag Bible class. However, they still have a project to help others. And, they need your help with donations.

Helping Hands is making tote bags for individual-sized personal hygiene products for the women, children, and families at Mary’s Place in Seattle. Please donate the following for these tote bags:

  • Toothpaste
  • Tooth brushes
  • Deodorant
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Razors
  • Tissues
  • Tweezers
  • Lip balm, such as ChapStick

Place your donations in the large, marked tote bag in the Parish Hall. The members of Helping Hands will assemble the tote bags with these items, and deliver them to Mary’s Place.

Mary’s Place

The mission of Mary’s Place is to empower homeless women, children, and families to reclaim their lives by providing shelter, nourishment, resources, healing, and hope in a safe community.

The vision of Mary’s Place is to be a leading voice for homeless women, children, and families in emergency situations. They empower families to reclaim their lives by offering community, acceptance, hope, and dignity. Their work keeps struggling families together and provides practical tools and resources that help them find housing and employment. They inspire the community to support homeless women, children, and families through advocacy, partnerships, volunteerism, and philanthropy.

Mary’s Place offices are at 1830 9th Avenue in Seattle, Washington. However, they have two day centers and six night shelters in King County.

Church of the Redeemer

Community life at Redeemer centers on worship in the Episcopal tradition. Art and music vitally deepen this worship. Our faith expresses itself with service to people, locally to internationally.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
