We setup tables and supplies twice a week in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle. Each week, we bring a streamlined list of items that usually consist of food, supplies, and clothing. Volunteers are encouraged to bring items to help the cause, or they can come to just serve, which is priceless. We have a suggested list of supplies below which help provide food for many people and is cost efficient. See the list below under the What to Bring section.

More than just providing food and supplies, we want to engage with others and make them feel loved. You can ask where they are from (hear their story), give them words of encouragement (God loves them!), and see if they would like prayer (dedicated volunteers available). We also have Bibles and biblical literature to help feed the soul. Our goal is to be a light and provide hope and love during this hard time in people’s life, while respecting their boundaries.
Reach Ministry is a full-time ministry and outreach we operate daily to make an impact in the community and into peoples lives.
Without your help we could not provide food, supplies, operations and materials to further the cause. By planting financial seeds of faith into Reach Ministry we can continue to move forward and touch many peoples lives.

We are all about networking and being a community that is inviting to others. To help this cause, people have asked how their church be involved; that’s a good question. Churches usually have either a coordinator or a Pastor overseeing community projects and events. We would be more than happy to communicate with the designated person in charge and let them know about our intentions and format. We believe a huge part of growing is to pour into others’ lives, as the Word says, “He that refreshes others will be refreshed himself.”
We receive questions about how small groups can get involved and what is needed. All are welcome to come out and serve; the more, the merrier! Just send an email to: email@example.com or call 425-298-3442, and our coordinator will give you more details on how you can join the cause. Often, small groups would like to work as a team and prepare beforehand and need details on what to bring. We will make sure to coordinate with you on what to bring to make the biggest impact for the event.
