Seattle Friday - Service and the LWP Potluck

Today was a busy day. We spent the day working at Westside Baby in White Center. Originally the plan was to help to dismantle car seats for recycling, but after a small electrical fire at their facility last week, they moved locations across the street. While everything was moved by the time we arrived yesterday, they needed help sorting the baby and clothes. It was nice to see so many great clothes donated. We each took a picture with our favorite outfits. Midway through our sorting an expected semi-truck full of diapers arrived. The staff came from high and low to help unload and we joined in. 45 minutes later we had moved 2,400 boxes of donated diapers.

When we finished at WS Baby we headed north for the PV Potluck. It was a wonderful night celebrating the PVs and friendships. Thank you to the more than 30 people who came to "be a part of it!" Your generosity and kindness is much appreciated.

The 2015 PV Seattle week was a wonderful experience with new sites and continuing to build relationships which we worked with in past year. Each year the PVs become more and more a part of the Seattle Community.
