Review for Boiler Room, Port Townsend, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was touring the Boiler Room today in downtown Port Townsend. I stood there amazed by all the wonderful things this place does for our community. No questions asked, you can go in there and pick up free food and hygiene supplies any time! They are open til 10 pm if you need a warm, dry place to sit and you never have to buy a thing to hang out. They offer monthly art classes and all ages open mic nights. Just since January, they have handed out over 20,000 meals! I was astounded.

As the director and I stood talking she was lamenting to me that donations are way down and yet they have managed to feed more people than ever before. She had just mentioned that their work training program trains people for jobs in food service, but it is volunteer. The tips are all they bring home at the end of a shift. Moments later one of the volunteers excused us and brought the tip jar over and asked Amy to look inside.
