Sleepless in Shoreline

Women Helping Women: Shoreline “Sleep-Out”
Turning tents into homes
Fri. Sept 24, 7pm – Sat. Sept 25, 8am

Shoreline Covenant Church
1330 N. 185th St.
Shoreline, WA  --  206-542-1050

Women and friends of Shoreline Covenant Church are turning tents into homes for women and children in Shoreline by raising money to buy lumber for Jacob's Well-a transitional housing complex, being constructed by Vision-House, for homeless women and children. Contact the church to bring your tent and pledges from friends, neighbors, family and co-workers and spend one night in solidarity with our sisters who struggle every night to find a safe and dry and warm place to sleep with their kids. We will end on Saturday morning with breakfast served at 8am!
We will "sleep-out" in our tents in the church parking lot and raise at least $4,000 in pledges. We have a donor willing to match that dollar for dollar, so if forty women participate and each raise $100 (that's only ten people giving $10 or twenty-five people each "buying" one $4 board), we can turn $4,000 into $8,000 and make a serious dent in the $160,000 Vision House needs to frame Jacob's Well before winter.  http://www.vision-house.org/vh_north.htm

You can pledge $4 a board or you can make a flat donation in any amount. Make checks to Shoreline Covenant Church, note “Shoreline Sleep-Out” in the memo line. To donate online visit http://www.vision-house.org/vh_donate.htm and scroll down to the bottom of the page to “other amount” and make a note in the comments field with “Shoreline Sleep-Out”.

Call Pastor Erika at 206-542-1050 or email erika@shorelinecovenant.org

Together we can help some of our most hidden and
vulnerable homeless: moms and kids!
