Care Packet Packaging Party for Unhoused Visitors

with No Comments

SUNDAY, MARCH 12, 10:10 A.M., Bloedel Hall

As a community that gathers at the height of Capitol Hill, Saint Mark's often welcomes visitors who are unhoused or are otherwise in need of basic supplies. The Vestry recently discussed creating a small care packet for visitors in need with these basic items: hand sanitizing wipes, small water bottle, protein snack, pair of socks, list of social services in the Capitol Hill area, rain poncho, toothbrush, travel-sized toothpaste, small notepad and pen. You are invited to join in this intergenerational gathering to assemble items in gallon size Ziploc bags. At the end of the gathering, the packets will be blessed by a clergy member.

Sign up to bring care packet items here via SignUpGenius. This list provides the specific items and quantities needed. Drop off the materials prior to the event in the nave coffee corner bin or bring them no later than 10:10 a.m. to the Bloedel Hall packing party. Questions? Email Kristen Kelly ( or Doug Thorpe (
