Today a small group of us gathered for our Annual Meeting and discussed several topics including how to welcome first timers, how to communicate that we are a Sangha and how we might engage in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. There will be more notes and specifics coming soon. But we wanted to get the word out right away that we’re going to participate in this discussion on homelessness on Capitol Hill next Thursday instead of having our usual sit at Pilgrim. We hope you’ll join us. You can RSVP via Facebook at but feel free to just show up also.
Spare the Change: Being a Changemaker on Homelessness in Our Neighborhood
Thursday, October 20 6-8 PM at The Summit On Pike, 420 E Pike.
Our goal is to inform, empower, and activate Capitol Hill residents and community members to help people experiencing homelessness.
Our program begins at 6:00pm with an open house – organizations and more will have booths with information on the work they’re doing the neighborhood and ways to get involved in make Capitol Hill more livable for ALL residents.
The panel begins at 6:30pm, includes:
1. Don Jensen, Community Lunch Capitol Hill
2. Millie Heye, PSKS
3. Silas and Johnny, YouthCare
4. Jackie St. Louis, MDT Outreach Team
At the end of the panel, we’re asking guests to help us gather supplies to distribute to our local homeless service providers/shelters (similar to our July 2015 event when we created care packs for people experiencing homelessness.)
Hosted by the Capitol Hill Community Council in partnership with the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce and Capitol Hill Housing.
