Shelter Shower - Drive Up & Drop Off Event!



What happens when we mobilize the caring power of community?
You answered that question on Thursday at the 12th Annual Shelter Shower; in only three hours, the community showered SafePlace and Family Support Center with over $15,000-worth of items they needed to support families in crisis. Diapers, towels, laundry detergent, gift cards, children's books and so much more piled up at our door.
Your generosity in this time of crisis is unprecedented and humbling. It was so amazing to see all of you drive up, drop off and show your support of those in need.
Thank you to our volunteers who masked up, gloved up and wore their holiday best. We can't do this work without you.
If you missed Shelter Shower, it is not too late to give. You can coordinate the drop off of a gift by calling United Way at (360) 943-2773 and arranging a drop-off date OR by donating to United Way here
Again, thank you for your incredible support. LIVE UNITED!

From all of us at United Way of Thurston County
