Epiphany Church of Seattle's Service & Outreach Team recently awarded six grants in support of nonprofit organizations nominated by Epiphany parishioners.
"One organization receiving funding is the Refugee Artisan Initiative in Lake City, where parishioner Ed Emerson is an ardent volunteer. The RAI, which happened to be featured in the September 19 Seattle Times, trains refugee women to manufacture products “upcycled” from materials ranging from surplus Tommy Bahama fabrics to used firehose and foil coffee bags. Ed secured a $2500 grant to purchase industrial sewing machines for RAI programs."
Epiphany was founded in 1907 in a neighborhood storefront to serve the spiritual needs of a rapidly growing Seattle. Learn about Epiphany's generous Parishioner Grants here.
