Rotary of West Seattle hosting Dec. 7 fundraiser for Transitional Resources

The Rotary of West Seattle is on a roll, helping raise supplies for Transitional Resources on Dec. 7 after helping the West Seattle Food Bank on the first Friday of October and gathering coats, gloves and scarves for those in need in November.

Here are the details on their latest fundraiser:

First Friday – Third Times a charm (too)

Following Hurricane Sandy, preparedness is on our minds too; so we looked within our community and decided for this First Friday (December 7th) we would ask the community to help us better prepare Transitional Resources.

Transitional Resources is a licensed mental health center and residential facility located here in West Seattle. They serve over 200 people per year.

They provide affordable housing in many forms from group homes to individual apartments depending on where people are in their recovery. Safe stable housing is essential to people being able to work towards recovery.

While Transitional resources is prepared with water and food for emergencies they want to make sure that their clients have some basic safety and first aid with them.

We would like to build on the success of past two First Fridays and ask community members to help us provide for people in our community in need. Here is what you should do go; to True Value or other community stores and purchase flashlights, batteries and/or first aid kits and join us for a drink at the Cask. If you do not have time to shop, we will be set up to accept cash or check donations too.

Come join your West Seattle Rotary for a drink and to hang out and help people in our community become more prepared.

October First Friday: 18 pounds of food for West Seattle Food Bank
November First Friday: 31 Coats and two bags of Gloves/ Scarves
