SEATTLE, WA - This holiday season, Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, along with sister company and LRE® member Ewing & Clark Inc., hosted a charity drive to benefit Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission, a charitable organization that provides support services to their homeless neighbors in King County. Employees were encouraged to donate items from the organization’s needs list, which included new and gently used apparel, non-perishable food items, personal hygiene products, baby supplies and other household essentials. In addition, Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate incentivized employees by matching any monetary contributions that were made, as well as the approximate value of donated items.
Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission started in 1932 as a soup kitchen to feed and care for those suffering from the Great Depression. The organization now offers 24/7 comprehensive assistance for those suffering from homelessness throughout King County. Their Outreach and Search & Rescue teams provide services like rides to their shelter, a mobile shower and volunteers that hand out life-saving saving materials every night. They also offer medical services, legal services, transitional housing, continued education, job placement and so many other services that make a positive impact on the homeless community of King County.
The charity drive was a complete success due to the generous donations and contributions from all staff members. A variety of blankets, warm clothing, new under garments, personal hygiene products and other basic necessities were collected and brought to the Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission donation drop off Thursday, December 20th.
