Nickelsville, a tent city encampment, was forced to vacate a city-owned
W. Marginal Way site on September 1, 2013 by the Seattle City Council. Homeless families with children moved to the Nickelsville site on S. Jackson Street. Two other Nickelsville sites include Union Street in Seattle and Skyway.
On Thursday, November 28 at 1:00 p.m. there will be a Thanksgiving Day dinner for the homeless families at Nickelsville. Adult and children volunteers are inviting Nickelsville families and low-income seniors living next door at Ernestine Anderson Place to a sit-down family style turkey dinner. This event is sponsored by Brian Runberg of Runberg Architecture Group and the Low Income Housing Institute.
Minister Heather Clark of the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church will provide the table blessing.
