St. Vincent & Environmental Works (EW) GiveBig Partnership!
Donate to EW to Help SVdP Georgetown Food Bank!
Environmental Works is excited to partner with St. Vincent de Paul of Seattle/King County for GiveBig 2017 on May 10, to raise money for pre-design services for SVdP’s growing food bank and other critical social service facilities in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.
SVdP’s 76-year-old food bank building requires extensive improvements to stay intact, to be able to house their continually growing and evolving services. A wall nearly collapsed last year, just one of many structural concerns that arise on a regular basis. And now that a new homeless encampment has opened in Georgetown, less than a mile from SVdP. The agency is eager to add shower and laundry facilities to meet these new residents’ needs.
Every dollar raised through GiveBig 2017 will make possible assessment of improved ways to use SVDP’s space, identification and prioritization of facility repairs and improvements, and development of preliminary plans and budgets (for work including the addition of shower facilities) that will enable SVDP to continue providing critical, responsive social services in Georgetown for decades to come.
Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, your GiveBig donations to Environmental Works on May 10 will be matched up to $2,500, so they will support twice as much pre-design work at no cost to SVdP.
