West Seattle Blog… | YOU CAN HELP: Canna West Seattle’s Christmas fundraiser for Camp Second Chance


In our most recent report on the Advisory Board for the Only Tiny House Warehouse in West Seattle Second chance in the camp, we noted an unusual donation request: Christmas decorations. These are, among other things, the items that come with a vacation trip. to be collected Canna West Seattle (5440 California SW; WSB sponsor) and his Culture shop on the street. from the announcement:

What types of articles does C2C need? Primarily, C2C residents have organized their own, community-sponsored, fun vacation event; a spirited competition for the best Christmas door decorations for each of their tiny houses. On December 20th, their competition for the “Best Holiday Door” will take place in the Tiny Home Village and the winners will be awarded.

Christmas decorations, provided they are not perishable, can be dropped off at Canna West Seattle on California Avenue or at the sister store, The Culture Shop, just across the street. In addition to Christmas decorations, C2C is looking for the following things (including the donation guidelines of the camp operator LIHI):

Clothes, towels and bed linen: should be new or lightly worn, free of stains or cracks, and recently cleaned prior to donation. NO used underwear.

Furniture: must be approved prior to donation, due to size restrictions in our tiny houses and apartment buildings, we only need to confirm that the dimensions of your items actually fit in our rooms.

Detergents and hygiene products: should be UNOPENED and travel size or relatively small, with a penchant for gender neutral items so that all people are comfortable.

Books, art supplies, household items, miscellaneous: should be in good condition, used gently, or new, and clearly labeled with their intended use (ie art supplies should be packaged or labeled as “art supplies”).

Also from the announcement, Canna owners and founders Maryam Mirnateghi explains, “There are so many different homeless programs that need community support, and Camp 2nd Chance is one of those that not only needs help from West Seattle but has a real impact on the lives of the people they work with it works. ”As we reported in the monthly status update, the camp at 9701 Myers Way S. usually houses between 50 and 60 people and is supported by municipal funds, which are expected to cover 20 more tiny houses in the next year.
