Giving Day: Queen Anne Helpline

The helpline improves the lives of our neighbors in need by providing emergency assistance for housing, food & basic needs.

When the owner of the Thriftway grocery stores, Dick Rhodes, realized that a number of older customers were purchasing pet food to eat because they couldn’t afford anything else, he started the Queen Anne Helpline with a group of community leaders in 1982. Since, the Helpline has been assisting neighbors in need with housing, food and other basic needs in three zip codes.

KING 5 will help the Queen Anne Helpline meet the growing need for stable housing in their community.
