MLK Day Volunteer Pillow Build!

by Michael Schaefer January 24, 2013

Mike and Volunteers at Plymouth Housing Group Pillow BuildPillow Building is fun!  This week we were pleased to help the folks at Seattle's Plymouth Housing Group

prepare for the opening of their newest residential facility for the chronically homeless - by building pillows.  Our group of energetic employees were joined with folks from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Plymouth Housing - and some top notch United Way of King County Volunteers.  And - whew - we were productive.  Our two teams built 90 of Soaring Heart's super comfy shredded latex pillows in less than 45 minutes.

On February 5th, when Plymouth opens it's new facility, each new resident will arrive to find a brand new pillow with a handwritten note wishing them the best of sleep in their new home.  While chronic homelessness might not end over-night, we at Soaring Heart are happy to do our part to bring what comfort we can to those in need.  You can also find more photos of this event on our Facebook page.

Our heartfelt thanks are also extended to Roger Coffey and his team at Latexco West who donated much of the latex we used, as well as the team at West Coast Fiber who made sure their shredders gave us some of the fluffiest pillow fill you could imagine.  (And judging from our volunteer photos, we had a blast sharing all that fluffiness with each other all morning as well!)

If you'd like to volunteer at one of our future events, watch for details at the UWKC volunteer website or stay tuned to our blog.  We are planning events with Children's Hospital this summer, and the Hutch Cancer Center next fall.  Meanwhile - the best of sleep to you all!
