We firmly believe in bringing resources to the people.
Be:Seattle has partnered with local businesses, theatres, and performers to host item drives across the city. From these item drives, we have collected hundreds of new clothes, menstrual products, writing materials, backpacks, hygiene products, and other materials that our houseless neighbors seek out.
Every Friday our team and volunteers head into neighborhoods across the city to distribute these items to neighbors in need. Every week, new items come in and go right into the hands of our neighbors. Since the program launched in March 2018, we have received over 700 donations and distributed over 500 to neighbors across our city. Additionally, we have given out nearly 400 Pledge maps through our Sidewalk Pantry program.
Sidewalk Pantry is made stronger by volunteer support.
