Donating Food or Winter Sleeping Bags / Coats / Clothing

Please call Sandee or Dave Richards at (425) 355-1042 to arrange the drop-off/pick-up of food, winter clothing, wool blankets, cold weather sleeping bags, and bicycles.

Today, Salt of the Earth Ministries wants to do more than just give out a free meal. We want to help the homeless (who show a desire for change in their lives) find permanent housing through rental assistance, which is possible if we have enough donations.

James 2:16 - If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?

Through mentoring and sharing the gospel, we also want to show them how to live strong, faithful, Christian lives, all for the glory of the Lord.

We are grateful to area supermarkets that continue to donate food each week, which we in turn give out to needy families, as well as use in our soup kitchen on 26th and Colby, in the basement of Westminister Presbyterian church. We are thankful to the church and their many faithful members for letting us use their kitchen / dinining facilities all these years.



WAYS TO HELP TODAY IN TIME FOR WINTER

IMMEDIATE NEED: As temperatures drop, we need cold weather sleeping bags to help the homeless. Click here to help!

Everett Gospel Mission reports an approximate one week waiting list to get into the shelter. That means that homeless who need shelter -- even as temperatures drop -- have to fend for themselves. We can help them with cold weather sleeping bags, but we need your help!
