Tent City 4 to be Welcomed Again by Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church
Congregation is honored to host the homeless for the 4th time, and invites all to help serve their needs.
WOODINVILLE, WA, April 6, 2012 -- On April 21st, Tent City 4 (TC4) will move to Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church (WUUC) for 90 days. WUUC is located at 19020 NE Woodinville-Duvall Road in Woodinville. See www.wuuc.org for more information about WUUC.
WUUC minister Lois Van Leer said “Hospitality and compassion are at the core of our religious tradition. It is a privilege for us to once again host Tent City 4 and its occupants. Of course our wish would be that the causes of homelessness be eradicated and that there would be no need for tent cities. But until that time comes, we will continue to open our church home to those who are homeless.”
WUUC invites the local community to share their generosity with TC4, and help ensure that the residents are served hot meals every evening. Helping with meals doesn’t take a huge amount of time--just a little effort and compassion. Groups of all kinds, such as church, book, or scout groups, can participate in this worthy endeavor. If you are interested in gathering some folks to plan, prepare, and serve a meal for up to 100 appreciative residents, please sign up at http://prem.calendars.net/tcmeals/d01/04/2012?display=M&style=B&positioning=A.
Another way to share your generosity with TC4 is to donate useful items. Their current needs list is at http://tentcity4.info/. TC4 also accepts the following:
- Sleeping bags
- Personal hygiene items
- Warm clothing
This is a wonderful chance to do something worthwhile for those who are less fortunate, in your very own neighborhood.
Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church (WUUC) is a welcoming congregation located at 19020 Woodinville-Duvall Road, across from Cottage Lake Park, in Woodinville. We put our faith into action for justice and peace. To find out more about WUUC, visit www.wuuc.org, call the WUUC office at 425.788.6044 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
