I hope your summer is off to a great start!   Camp Unity Eastside is located at Northlake Lutheran Church, 6620 NE 185th Street, Kenmore.   There are 34 men and women at the camp now.

Your support has been critical to the camp being able to continue to operate and provide a safe shelter for people who are experiencing homelessness – we’re very grateful!  Below are updates for the upcoming month and beyond.  Thank you for passing this newsletter along to others.

Camp supply needs: Bottled water, coffee cups and regular drinking cups, paper towels, HP64 ink, shower cleaner (prefer Clean Shower brand), propane tank for grill.
The camp is also seeking a computer so that there is one that can be used to check for housing opportunities, jobs, work on resumes and similar needs.
Thank you for bringing supplies and donations to the camp at Northlake Lutheran Church, 6620 NE 185th Street, Kenmore.

Meals: Summer time can be a busy time with family vacations though if you can sign up to bring one meal during July or August it means a lot to the men and women at the camp.   Just access this link to sign up.

We are thankful for your support and care for the men and women at Camp Unity Eastside (CUE).

I hope you have a wonderful week.
