We are an active organization, and sponsor several events and opportunities for our community to join us in working towards an end to homelessness and poverty.

Hope Auction

Each spring, Interfaith Coalition presents Hope Auction, a lively and fun social event featuring the area’s most eclectic silent and live auction. Over one-third of our budget is raised during this evening, which showcases a variety of unique items and services donated by local businesses, congregations and individuals. This is one auction you don’t want to miss! Our next Hope Auction will be Saturday, March 24, 2018.

Choir Fest

In February of each year, choirs from member congregations of Interfaith Coalition come together to share spiritual music from diverse traditions. Each choir sings an individual song and then all the singers come together for a joyful combined choir of over 200 singers. This is a delightful afternoon of choral music. If your choir is interested in participating, please contact Laura Harker at laura@interfaith-coalition.org

Winter Coat Drive

If you, like many of us, have extra coats or jackets, winter scarves, hats or gloves, consider donating them to our Winter Coat Drive, held in October and November. We collect donations of gently used or new warm weather gear for those who do without these basic necessities. We distribute in five locations across Whatcom County.

Project Homeless Connect

Each July, our community provides a day of support services for homeless men and women. We participate by collecting many key supplies that our neighbors, living on the streets, need. These include camping equipment, sleeping bags and tarps, as well as personal hygiene kits we put together and distribute that day.

Special Fundraisers

Fellowship and fun come together in special fundraisers to benefit the work of Interfaith. These can include live theatre performances of popular plays and musicals at the Bellingham Theatre Guild, as well as Ferndale Uncorked!, a summer afternoon of wine tasting and live music.

Annual Hope Meeting

Come. Be inspired. Share our hope and our work for a better future for everyone by attending our annual Hope Meeting, held each October. Congregational reps and friends are warmly invited to join us as we share highlights of the past year and look ahead to ambitious goals. Come for fellowship, inspiration and opportunities for how individuals and congregations can join in our work and mission.

This year's Annual Hope Meeting will be Tuesday, October 17 at 7 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church's Grace Center, 119 Texas Street in Bellingham. Please come and hear from families and volunteers who share stories of compassion and hope. Learn how you can help us serve additional homeless families through Family Promise.
