Federal Way community organizations have come together in an effort to develop a Day Center for the homeless and those living below the poverty line.
We have provided:
Computer and email access
Kitchen and daily food warming
The Center opened December 5, 2016.
As of year end 2016 the project has garnered $102,815.50 from the community. The goal for 2017 is $50,000 additional.
"Right now, Federal Way only has one place the
homeless can go to one day a week to shower.
The Day Shelter would mean we could shower
in Federal Way
6/13/2017... Per Whonakee and Dorothy regarding needs. Here is what is high priority:
Laundry Detergent - either liquid or pods (Pods are easier to use) We only have 3 pods for tomorrow!
Bleach - Liquid- this is used for towels at the end of the day and bleach water to clean
Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Socks-mens and womens
Women's underwear-sizes 5,6,7 and 8
Men's underwear-all sizes (we currently do not have any men's underwear)
Hygiene products-shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste-(small), toothbrush, bar soap, brushes, combs, shavers (No lotion needed)
Let your friends and family who are traveling to save the hotel sizes for the Day Center!
There is also a surplus of milk that needs to be used before it expires. A donation of dry cereal and instant pudding would help use that up.
