Out in the Community

Summertime in West Seattle is a beautiful time to explore the community, and West Seattle Helpline had the honor of being invited to join our neighbors at two beloved summer traditions.

July brought about the return of West Seattle Summerfest, with music, food, and games for West Seattle neighbors of all ages. Our staff, board members, and volunteers had a blast talking to folks about the West Seattle Helpline, signing up volunteers, selling raffle tickets, and playing the clothing-toss game to raise awareness about The Clothesline. What a fun way to spend a weekend out in the community!

Fun flicks, prizes, and lovely warm nights outside—it’s Outdoor Movie season in West Seattle! The West Seattle Helpline was the featured charity for the West Seattle Outdoor Movies on Saturday, August 15th. Local comedians made us laugh, the West Seattle Historical Society provided snacks and drinks, Coastline Burgers brought us fresh-baked cookies, and “Guardians of the Galaxy” entertained us as the night brought the community together. We also raffled off a selection of great prizes donated by our generous sponsors:

Altogether, we raised over $425 to support neighbors in need. Thank you to everyone who made the night a great success!
