Greenwood’s Urban Hands nonprofit raising money to provide sleeping bags and socks to homeless

Greenwood nonprofit Urban Hands has launched an Indiegogo page to raise funds for its fourth annual “Sleepless in Seattle Big Give” on Dec. 16, when hundreds of volunteers will fan out across Seattle to distribute sleeping bags, socks and handwritten cards to homeless men and women.

Urban Hands has distributed about 10,000 sleeping bags in the previous three years. They’re hoping to raise $30,000 this year. They plan to have about 300 volunteers pass out sleeping bags in Greenwood, Belltown, South Seattle and the U-District.

If you’d like to volunteer, see their website for more information.

Urban Hands was founded in 2014 to provide meals, job training and job placement to homeless individuals.
