Celebrating July 4th with our homeless neighbors

Companis celebrated July 4th with more than 500 of our neighbors, many of whom are currently experiencing homelessness. The 7th Annual Independence Day Picnic BBQ co-sponsored by Companis and Seattle First Baptist Church, benefitted from the many hands, loving hearts and dedication of more than 70 volunteers. They served 502 meals yesterday, with warm smiles, and three stylists offered free haircuts to more than 60 guests! Dozens found assistance through the referrals and resources table staffed by Companis Workers Alanna Gunne, Martha Hopler, Barbara Sehr and Catherine Fales. And everyone enjoyed some great music and dancing!

Thank you to SFBC and its Outreach Commission, for the opportunity to once again co-sponsor this love-inspired event, and to ALL the volunteer support that made the day possible!
