Blanket Shortage

Blanket Shortage

"With freezing temperatures, the Mission is running out of blankets to give to those living on the streets," reports Q13 Fox News.

"The Mission's Search and Rescue teams hand out wool rescue blankets to the homeless, but there is now a shortage.

"The blanket gives them a chance to maybe survive the night. Without the blanket, some people won't be alive the next morning especially in this cold weather," said Lynch.

One Night Count

Homeless Count Up 19%

More than 4,505 people were sleeping outside in Seattle and across King County during the region’s annual One Night Count.

This number is an increase of 19% over those found without shelter this same time last year.

Mark Putnam, the director of All Home, formerly the Committee to End Homelessness, says organizers "definitely saw a real trend" of more homeless people in Federal Way, Kent, Renton, and other parts of South King County.
