The 2018 Walk for the Women, benefiting Hospitality House is scheduled for Saturday, September 15, 2018. Your generous support for this walk each year has helped us to provide shelter, food, supportive case management and programming services to homeless women in our community.
Throughout the last eighteen years, Hospitality House has grown into a thriving organization, thanks in part to the wonderful support of the south King County community and its local businesses. Sadly, the need for the services at Hospitality House has grown as more and more women in our community experience homelessness. Our demographic has shifted toward older women who find themselves turned out because they cannot afford the high rents out, they may have expensive health issues, they cannot find jobs that pay sustaining wages… there are so many stories. Without our help, many women will continue to live in chronic homelessness.
I am asking for your continued financial support for the Walk for the Women as a community, individual or business sponsor, by making a contribution. The Walk will be held Saturday, September 15, 2018 beginning in Burien Town Square Park with registration at 9:30am. The funds we raise from The Walk are used year-round at the Hospitality House shelter. Your sponsorship provides needed shelter and programs to help women to stabilize their lives and find permanent stable housing.
As a sponsor, your business or organization will be listed in all the printed materials for the day of The Walk. Various levels of sponsorship are available this year, including signage with your name along the participant’s route, press material mentions and this year we are hoping to attract more walkers than ever before through increased visibility via our expanded website and Facebook page, advertising in local publications and outreach at other community events. Our partnership with the Burien Wellness Fair helps us to promote the walk and our sponsors to the Burien community and beyond. With your help, we hope to raise more than $25,000 in 2018 for the shelter.
Since opening in October 2000, we have witnessed the transformation of hundreds of lives, most of the women we serve come from our communities here in South King County. Hospitality House has been able to serve these women in need because of the generosity of businesses, community organizations and individuals like you who have supported the shelter for nearly eighteen years. With your help, we will continue to make a difference in the lives of homeless women for another eighteen years.
Thank you for your consideration,
Sheenah Randolph, Executive Director of Hospitality House
