Tent City 3 is moving March 5!

I hear from the residents of Tent City 3 that the camp has found a host for March 5 -- the University Congregational United Church of Christ, at 4515 16th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105.

The actual spot the camp expects to use is on the northeast corner of 45th and 15th. This spot was used by Nickelsville a couple of times, and by the Ave Foundation for a short period of time while Tent City 3 was at the Ravenna site.

The site is a bit smaller than their current site, and moving in will be somewhat difficult because of that. They will need help moving in, so volunteers will probably be welcome.

Call Tent City 3 at 206-399-0412 and speak to the movemaster for details about volunteering to help them move. People with trucks and vans, willing to haul stuff in them, will likely be welcome. SHARE usually rents a couple of large yellow trucks from Handy-Andy, but they can always use additional help.

Tent City 3 starts its moves at 8 am, and keeps going until everything is off the old site.

One other thing: moving in the rain is no fun at all, so pray for a sunny day for them.
