Equip an apartment

Welcome Bloomside tenants to their new homes

DESC is almost ready to have clients move into Bloomside (formerly Burien) PSH and we need your help to make our 95 incoming tenants feel at home in their apartments right away!

Bedding, kitchen, bathroom supplies and other items transform empty apartments into comfortable homes. With your donations we can buy these household goods that are essential to easing our clients’ transition into their new permanent homes, and we are so grateful for your support in making them feel at home.

There are two ways to help out

Donate, and help set up

If you’d like to donate AND SET UP an apartment, ADOPT an apartment at Bloomside at Burien!

The whole family can participate in setting up an apartment!

Saturday, June 1, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. This special family-friendly event for apartment adopters includes activities such as making welcome signs, games and safe snacks for all.

Donate, and we’ll set it up

If you’d like to donate without setting up an apartment, SPONSOR an apartment at Bloomside!

Sponsoring an apartment means that your donation will purchase supplies and materials that another volunteer will set up in-person.
