Seattle Outreach: A Glimpse Into Our Weekly Outing
Written by: Briona Allen, Seattle Volunteer and Outreach Lead
On any given Thursday night in downtown Seattle, our outreach team could encounter homeless youth anywhere from toddler age to mid-20s who are in need of food and basic supplies. We often see the same kids and many of them have come to affectionately refer to us as "The Purple People" because of our purple-hued hats, shirts, and sweatshirts. We usually carry around four bags on our backs full of supplies such as socks, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and pet food, along with a cart full of food packs. Typically, we’re greeted warmly by the kids, and we in turn greet them in the same manner, calling them by name whenever we can.
