KentHOPE aims to create a stable pathway out of homelessness.
Each year the Nist Family Fund selects a non-profit organization to support.
The 2022 Christmas Giving and 2023 STB Golf Tournament recipient chosen was KentHOPE; a ministry of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission located in Kent, serving homeless women and their children by giving them a safe place to call home, 3 meals a day and access to countless resources. Their mission is to build community by providing stable pathways out of homelessness while caring for body, mind, and spirit.
In December 2022, Seattle-Tacoma Box Company supported KentHOPE for our Christmas Giving. KentHOPE utilizes a unique and innovative approach to meet the needs of homeless families. Recognizing that in order to carry out their mission there are three program options to help their guests: Emergency Shelter, Bridge Recovery Program and LINK program. For more info: kenthope.org.
STB employees donated above our anticipated goal of gift cards due to the generosity of our teams and organization, which the company matched as an added donation. These gift cards were given to women as an opportunity to shop freely for themselves and their children based on their own individual needs.
