Giving back to our community has been one of PNwRC’s guiding principles since its inception. We believe strongly that although the challenges of homelessness, hunger and finding a cure for cancer may seem insurmountable, together we CAN make a difference. We are proud and honored to support the following charities through various fund raising events throughout the year.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.
Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people to:
At Relay, people who have walked alongside people battling cancer can grieve and find healing. Fight Back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease!!

The Union Gospel Mission has been serving the hurting and homeless in our community through emergency and long-term services for over 77 years. In spring 2009, they opened the doors of a beautiful new Women and Children’s facility, Hope Place, in the International District of Seattle.
Northwest Harvest – Fall/Winter Event
The mission of Northwest Harvest is to provide nutritious food to hungry people statewide in a manner that respects their dignity, while fighting to eliminate hunger. Northwest Harvest receives no city, county, state, or federal funding for operating expenses and relies solely on contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations, and other organizations. Much of their work is made possible by volunteers of all ages, who give 66,000 hours of their time each year to feed the hungry.
