Our 500 Bags Project featured on KIRO 7 news!

 

More than two dozen volunteers turned out and filled all 500 bags with things like snacks, lip balm and toothbrushes — in less than half an hour. “It’s heartening and many people we didn’t know showed up, so that’s wonderful, too,” Domenica Lovaglia said. “I think we are going to have to do 5,000 next year.” The event was held at Metropolist in SODO, a real estate company co-owned by Lovaglia that also houses an event space. Lovaglia said the idea came from seeing encampments all around the city. “We do a lot of philanthropic stuff around here,” Lovaglia added. “It’s part of our ethos and this was a really simple project we knew people would love to do.”
