Our volunteer location is in the University District in Seattle.

We are excited to be working out of a large space where we can process more letters and host more volunteers. And while we are not directly affiliated with the University Christian Church, we are pleased to have found a home in their building, which also houses several other non-profit groups! Our work hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 6 to 10 pm, and Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. Please email us for address details and instructions on how to get into the building.
