With cold weather hitting the Pacific NorthWest this holiday season, Avitus Group staff in the company’s Bellevue office is launching a blanket drive to support Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.
“If we are cold just sitting at our desks in the office or walking to and from our cars, imaging if you didn’t have a roof over your head, heat to turn or or even a warm blanket to snuggle up in,” says Avitus Group Bellevue-based Payroll Specialist Jennifer Marlette.
Avitus Group invites the business community and the community at large to drop off new or slightly used blankets at its Bellevue office anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday now through December 15th, 2017.
Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission has been in the Seattle area for 85 years feeding and caring for the homeless men, women and children in the community. Each night the mission travels to the darkest places in King County to hand out life-saving supplies like blankets.
