2nd Annual Bed Race to Help Families Experiencing Homelessness

Round up four friends into a team and join the wacky, fun Bed Race from 2 to 4 pm Sunday, Sept. 30 in Bellingham’s Civic Field parking lot. The second annual Bed Race begins with an informal parade as costumed teams showcase their decorated and newly mobile beds. To learn more about this fun event, check out the Bed Race website. You can also sponsor a team. Lots of laughs and free family fun, with a chance to donate if you wish. Prizes awarded for fastest bed (grease those wheels!), most money raised, best theme, and more. All proceeds benefit Interfaith’s Family Promise.

Winter Warmth Drive

Interfaith Coalition’s Winter Warmth Drive provides gently-used coats, hats, gloves and scarves to children and adults at four locations in Whatcom County. If you have warm outerwear to donate, please bring your clean items to any Banner Bank location in Bellingham and Ferndale, Interfaith Coalition’s office, or many congregations throughout Whatcom County.  For many of our neighbors, this program means they won’t need to spend limited income on a winter coat, or do without. Thank you for sharing the warmth!

Do you need a coat? Coats will be distributed on these dates and locations:

Ferndale: United Church of Ferndale, 2034 Washington Street in Ferndale on Wednesday, October 10 and Saturday, October 13, 10am to 1pm

Bellingham: Assumption Church Gym, 2116 Cornwall Avenue in Bellingham on Saturday, October 20 from 11am to 1:30pm, and Saturday, October 27 from 10:30am to 12:30pm.

Blaine: Unit 280 Cost Cutter Shopping Center, 1733 H Street in Blaine on Tuesday, October 16 and Friday, October 19 from 10am to 2pm, and Wednesday, October 17 from 5pm to 8pm

Deming: Foothills Food Bank, located in St. Peter’s Catholic Church, 6210 Mt. Baker Hwy in Bellingham on Tuesday, October 30 from 9am to 11:30am
