Snoqualmie Valley Rotary Club has been awarded a Rotary District matching grant of $10,000 to support services for the homeless in the Valley. Rotary has announced partnership with Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services, Duvall Rotary and a private supporter of Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services for a total project budget of $19,000.

These funds will purchase much needed infrastructure for Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services. Targeted items are the purchase of a high-capacity washer and dryer in the current day shelter and an 8.5 by 10-foot cargo trailer, updates to the current shower trailer and installation of 50 lockers to provide safe and secure storage for clients’ possessions.

Jennifer Kirk, Director of Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services said “These changes and upgrades will help meet needs that we have rarely been able to fulfill. They will create a sense of dignity as well as offer ways for our clients to tend to their daily business and increase their ability to secure job opportunities. The trailer will travel with us to each winter shelter site. We move three times throughout the winter months to cover all major areas in the Upper Snoqualmie Valley. The shelter is open to residents throughout the Snoqualmie Valley, from North Bend through Duvall.”

Snoqualmie Valley Rotary meets every Thursday Morning at 7 a.m. at The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge; guests are always welcome.
