Free Letters Home now at the Whittier Heights Tiny House Village

A letter home.  That could be the first small step to reconnecting homeless individuals with their loved ones, to re-establish a relationship long neglected, or simply to say “I’m ok”.  This is the goal of Free Letters Home™, a Sustainable Ballard project that has been operating since July of 2013 on the second Tuesday evening of each month at Nyer Urness House.

Now we have added a new opportunity — every other Tuesday @ 3:30pm at the Whittier Heights Tiny House Village.  Starting August 27th, Free Letters Home™ is now at at the WH Tiny House Village with pens and paper, cards and stationary, envelopes and stamps — everything one needs to send a note, letter or postcard to a friend, relative or loved one. Upcoming dates:
Sept 10 & 24, Oct 8 & 22, Nov 5 & 19, and Dec 3 & 17.

How can I help?

We need 1 or 2 additional volunteers in both locations:
For second Tues eve at Nyer Urness, contact Bev.
For every other Tues afternoons at WH Tiny House Village, contact Andrea.

While we are happy to take any card donations, Free Letters could specifically use more cards for sympathy/loss, get well, and then Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas or “Happy Holidays.”  Postcards of Washington/Seattle are also popular. We have plenty of blank cards/envelopes and birthday cards.  

If you would like to donate cards, please contact Andrea.
