Enjoying five decades of customer satisfaction

Dee McQuesten

For nearly five decades, Dee McQuesten has hired workers from us on a consistent basis. From the 1970s to the present day, Dee has one glowing observation about the quality of services she’s received:

“One of the things that continues to impress me is, not only are your people skilled, but they never fail to be prompt,” Dee writes to us.

Recently Dee decided to downsize and move to a new home. She requested a team of Millionair Club Charity workers to assist with her move, and they did not disappoint. She had especially nice things to say about James, the leader of the moving team.

“A special thanks to James Woods, who is a superstar mover and supervisor,” Dee says. “He led the team and was terrific. Brennan, Gabriel and Jeremiah were all GREAT!”

Meet Betty: Long-time donor issues a Hobart Mixer challenge

Meet Betty, a long time supporter of the Millionair Club Charity.

Meet Betty, a long time supporter of the Millionair Club Charity.

Since 1949, Betty Wagner has supported the Millionair Club Charity’s multifaceted approach to touching lives of men and women in greater Seattle.

“People who need a job, need a place where they can find a job,” Betty says. “However, if people are ever going to be able to make anything of themselves, they need a place to live, take care of their health, and be educated.”

Betty continues to support the Millionair Club Charity because she thinks our combination of job training, hot meals and housing assistance is a smart approach to philanthropy.

“Now that the Millionair Club Charity has the Kasota apartments, they have all the components to assist people to connect successfully with work,” Betty says.

On a recent visit to the Millionair Club Charity, Betty noticed the kitchen’s Hobart Mixer – an important piece of equipment that helps us serve 89,000 hot meals each year – was so old that replacement parts were no longer available if anything were to break. Betty donated $500 to kick-start a replacement fund for the $2,000 needed to buy a new mixer.

“I hope others will join me,” she says.

Thank you, Betty! So, what’s your story? Why do you donate? Share your inspirational story by e-mailing Chris at christiner@millionairclub.org.

Interested in checking out the Kasota apartment units you’ve heard so much about?

On Saturday, August 15 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at 2212 1st Avenue we’re inviting you to our Kasota Open House! This is your chance to look inside the renovated building and see how we’re providing the men and women in our Employment Program a secure place to live.

The Kasota apartment building is a 48-unit affordable housing option for our workers. Complemented with the security that comes with a steady paycheck, our vision is to provide the men and women we serve a sturdy foundation for rebuilding their lives.

Escaping homelessness and poverty can be a daunting challenge. Barriers to employment combined with the high cost of living in the Seattle area contribute to the struggles of so many in our community. The Kasota apartment is one more way we are actively addressing these issues.

At the Kasota Open House, we will take visitors inside a typical room. You will see the furniture, kitchenette and amenities our tenants now enjoy. There is no cost to attend. We hope to see you there!
