One beneficiary of the Kraus grant was a proposal to get more use out of the shelterhouse in Madrona Park through community programming in a partnership with the Garfield Community Center (as well as adding an indoor toilet for the winter months).
The first step of that proposal starts tomorrow (Friday) with Story Time for kids 5 and under from 9:30-10:30am. There will also be coloring sheets and toys for children to play with.
Organizer Karin Richard is still looking for volunteers to read stories each week, as well as a clean area rug or carpet remnant to donate for the floor of the shelterhouse.
Stay tuned for more on the indoor toilet and other shelterhouse activities coming, including a sewing class starting in January.
