Another year has passed, another season, another Summer. Our second summer at this location, and we're heading into our second Autumn. This may not sound like a great deal, but for the 109 residents of Nickelsville, it is unprecedented.
The Fourth Nickelsville Birthday Bonanza is occurring September 22nd, and we would be honored if you would attend.
With the lack of affordable housing, and shelters that often force families to split up, Nickelsville is the only interim survival mechanism that keeps families and pets together.Our families are preparing their children for a new schoolyear.
Friends and Community have come together to create more than a dozen small simple sturdy sleeping structures. Our volunteer Security have been enjoying the two sturdy shacks as they watch over their friends and fellow campers, thanks to the same individuals who have put their time and effort into creating these structures as well as a new privacy wall constructed out of recovered pallets.
Our four-legged friends have been well taken care of, thanks to friends such as our allies at Furry Faces. Furry Faces, a non-profit vetinary clinic, is supporting a spay and neuter campaign for our feline and canine campers. Sally and Richard, our resident goats, are fully grown and enjoying their lives in the camp.
(We took many pictures and videos of the event which
you can view on our Facebook group “Nickelsville Works”; please join for regular
updates if you have not yet done so.)
Once again, thank you for your ongoing support and
