DOPE MOMENTS April - June 2019!!! April 02 2019

Hey Friends! I am so proud of us! We raised $550 for Pike Market Food Bank and had 3 amazing volunteer sessions where we learned more about the demand for food in our city, accessibility and packed 500 no-cook bag for folks who don't have access to a kitchen. We will FOR SURE be collaborating with PMFB again in the near future!
Our second quarter of Dope Moments is in support of ROOTS and there will be more volunteer opportunities to come! Until then see you on the mat!
ROOTS has been serving young people experiencing homelessness since 2000- they were the first shelter in the city that specifically addressed the needs of homeless youth. It is estimated that over 1,000 young people are homeless on any given night in King County, and many more unstably housed (couch surfing, living in their cars). Youth experiencing homelessness are more likely to identify as LGBTQIA than their housed peers and much more likely to have experienced sexual violence (40%) and physical violence (60%) in the home. Based in the U-District, ROOTS provides safe overnight shelter for young adults aged 18-25. Youth seeking shelter at ROOTS are provided with breakfast and dinner, showers, clothing, toiletries, access to case managers and supportive adults. Every Friday ROOTS hosts a “Friday Night Feast” an all ages meal served at the shelter and open to anyone in the community who would like to attend. The feast provides restaurant quality meals via food donations and volunteer labor. We are so pleased to be supporting this amazing local charity this quarter during Dope Moments. Your donations will go to provide meals, supplies, and a welcoming safe place for young people. We will be working with ROOTS to set up some volunteer days for Poseurs in the coming month- Stay tuned for more information on volunteer days- and join us for Dope Moments! Every Thursday, 6:15pm, All Levels Vinyasa, Give Whatever You Can Afford, April- June, All Bodies Welcome!! Thanks to the generosity of our Poseurs community we now have mats and blocks you can borrow during class :).
