NOVEMBER – DECEMBER 2022
Together in partnership with Sackcloth & Ashes, Federal Way Young Life would like to invite you to Blanket Federal Way this November and December. Young Life desires to reach EVERY KID, and Sackcloth & Ashes desires to reach EVERY PERSON experiencing homelessness. Recent statistics indicate that approximately 1,000 kids within the Federal Way School District are experiencing some type of homelessness.
Our vision is big, but we also believe God is able!
Will you join us this winter to Blanket Federal Way and bless all of these families? Our goal is to sell 1,000 blankets so we can donate 1,000 more! For every blanket purchased from Federal Way Young Life, one will be donated to a kid or family experiencing homelessness.
Thanks to all who partnered in the Turkey Drive this year! 100 turkeys, 250 pounds of potatoes, 50 pounds of butter & 50 baskets filled with sides were donated to the FW Vets Center & Communities in Schools! Lots of families enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal because of your generosity!
Life isn’t always easy after a deployment. That’s where Vet Centers can help. Vet Centers across the country provide a broad range of counseling, outreach, and referral services to combat veterans and their families. Vet Centers guide veterans and their families through many of the major adjustments in lifestyle that often occur after a veteran returns from combat. Services for a veteran may include individual and group counseling in areas such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), alcohol and drug assessment, and suicide prevention referrals. All services are free of cost and are strictly confidential.
98,576 veterans, active duty service members (including Guard and Reservists) and their families received readjustment counseling at VA’s 300 Vet Centers, totaling more than 1.9 million visits in Fiscal Year 2018.
We here at the Federal Way Vet Center would like to thank the SK Firefighter Foundation, CityHill Church (FW) & Family Life and many more for their fantastic support shown this Thanksgiving for our veterans that are blessed to live among these amazing people. It was heartwarming to witness the generosity of all involved.
And a special thanks goes out to WE LOVE OUR CITY for coordinating the donation drive this year…without them, this would have never happened!
