LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A ‘Shout Out’ Of Praise For Burien Bark
I don’t know how to post this, so hope you can help me.
I would like to give a ‘shout out’ of praise to Burien Bark. Today I visited Nickelsville (our local homeless camp) with some food and saw how low they were on wood chips and gravel…essentials for keeping the mud at bay.
I came home and called Burien Bark and asked if they would be willing to donate some wood chips and gravel. Without so much as a one second pause, Jeff of Burien Bark said ‘absolutely’. They will go Monday the 9th to deliver Wood Chips, observe what kind of gravel they are using and turn around and deliver that, too. Jeff also said he would be on the look out for ‘pallets’ which the camp uses to elevate their tents from the muddy surfaces.
I have used Burien Bark for 10 years and I love their sense of family and ‘community’. Jeff mentioned that when the camp was in Burien a while back that he delivered some gravel to them, simply upon seeing their needs.
Support Burien Bark!

PS: Nickelsville has many needs, some of which we can fill from ‘extra’ items we have at home. If people think they have items that can help the homeless, please let them know they can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am just one person trying to help, but will do my best to respond to all efforts on their behalf.
