We are honored to have several companies and organizations that have contributed to our work at the Mission:
The Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound
The Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound (ECF) is a unique employee-owned charitable foundation. Since 1951, generous Boeing employees have contributed $500,000,000 (half- a-billion dollars!) to local Puget Sound nonprofits. ECF grants enable agencies to purchase equipment, renovate their facilities and create new programs that directly help their clients and strengthen our communities. Since 1979, the Employees Community Fund has granted $251,744 in support Bread of Life Mission and the people we serve.
While enrolled in one of FareStarts programs, some of the students live at Bread of Life Mission. Farestart provides culinary job training to people who are rebuilding their lives. They help people build skills to overcome homelessness, joblessness, poverty and hunger.
Campbell Auto group
Campbell Nelson The Road Home was created out of the desire to help meet the basic needs of those less fortunate by partnering with our employees and customers. This partnership involves Campbell Nelson employees and customers giving of their time and resources to manage the distribution of funds and talents to various non-profits and ministries that work to relieve the suffering of others.
Our community development strategy has always been to enable low- and moderate-income individuals and the communities in which they live to grow into sustainable, desirable, more culturally integrated and more comfortably managed lifestyles and environments.
"Enabling" is a very purposeful and specifically defined objective at East West Bank. It means that we seek first and foremost to help people and communities in need to help themselves. We believe steadfastly that this approach, far more than monetary giving alone, will help create positive, desirable and sustainable change.
WATERSHED Science & Engineering
WATERSHED Science & Engineering considers community service to be an integral part of their corporate culture. They engage in several office wide projects each year such as serving lunches at the Bread of Life Mission or sorting food at the Emergency Feeding Program. In addition, their employees are provided with paid leave in order to engage in community service activities that are of interest to them, both locally and globally. As a business located in Pioneer Square, they are proud to partner with the Bread of Life to bring hope and help to Seattle’s homeless and hurting residents.
Food Lifeline works with the food industry and its surpluses to devise creative solutions to ending hunger, including redirecting good food from manufacturers, farmers, grocery stores, and restaurants that may otherwise go to waste. Founded in 1979, Food Lifeline consists of a food program network of 275 members, including the Bread of Life Mission. The Mission has been certified by Food Lifeline to meet the highest standards for client care and food safety.
Bread of Life Mission has been supported by numerous faithful volunteers from churches and other ministries both in Seattle and more regionally as well. Individuals from these communities give their time throughout the week to lead chapel services and pray with men who enter the Mission’s doors during the evening for warm meals and shelter.
