Northwest Hospitality was established in October 2016. Since then, we have distributed about 175 hospitality kits and provided at least 60 meals through Subway cards maintained throughout the Seattle area. Benefit for Our Homeless Neighbors is our first large fundraising event. It will help introduce our new nonprofit to the community and raise funds for our programs and those of the wonderful nonprofits joining us, Northwest Harvest and Street Soccer Seattle.
Northwest Harvest is Washington’s home-grown food bank distributor. Each month, Northwest Harvest provides more than two million nutritious meals and supports a statewide network of more than 375 food banks, meal programs and high-need schools – focusing on consistent, nutritious, culturally-sensitive foods critical to both the body and mind. Throughout its 50 years, Northwest Harvest has grown from a project of local social activists to its position today as the leader in fighting hunger in the state of Washington.
Street Soccer Seattle is soccer for social change. Their mission is to foster the camaraderie, community, and confidence that are central to the sport of soccer to empower homeless individuals to find greater success and peace in their lives. Through their soccer-based curriculum, players learn valuable life skills and receive support towards their goals on and off the field. A relational coaching style and an encouraging team atmosphere are essential parts of their approach.
Through the generous cooperation and partnership with these vital and established organizations, Northwest Hospitality hopes to expand our support base so we can reach more people in the streets. Hopefully this will be the first of many annual events where we can raise funds for NWH and other excellent local nonprofits.
