Thank You Seattle

We wanted to say a special "Thank You" to all the wonderful organizations in Seattle who opened their arms to the PVs. They are all doing amazing work within the community and we were grateful to be just a small part of their work. Below are the organizations that we worked with, along with their mission and a link to their websites. We encourage you to check out their websites and learn more about their missions. You can see what the PVs did at each organization in previous blog posts.

Oso/Darrington Mudslide Relief Community Collection Center:  A grassroots community effort that formed from hearing from those on-the ground at the scene, that the much needed and appreciated donations that were arriving to the site were overwhelming volunteers and that storage space was limited.

St. Francis House:  St. Francis House is established in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi to be a presence in Seattle to serve those in need and to inspire simplicity and charity in its volunteers and those they serve.  

Union Gospel Mission:  Seattle's Union Gospel Mission provides emergency care and long-term recovery services to hurting and homeless people in the greater Seattle area. We're dedicated to serving, rescuing and transforming those in greatest need through the grace of Jesus Christ.

Our Lady of Guadalupe School:   Our Lady of Guadalupe School fosters gospel values, inspires academic excellence, and develops service and leadership. We face this task as a sacramental community united and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish:   OLG a very active and vibrant parish that is located in the heart of West Seattle. Our hope is that this website will reflect our parish mission, providing not only information but formation as well, helping persons have a better understanding of who we are and what we believe as Catholic Christians.

WestSide Baby:  WestSide Baby, in partnership with our community, provides essential items to local children in need by collecting and distributing diapers, clothing and equipment.
