A group of Seattle-area youths helped Ryan’s House For Youth with a little housekeeping last week.

More than a dozen students from St. Dunstan’s in Shoreline and Epiphany Parish in Seattle spent four days on a mission trip under the leadership of Mary Packer, who has a vacation home on Whidbey Island.

The students stayed at St. Augustine’s in-the-Woods Episcopal Church and worked three days for Ryan’s House For Youth, a non-profit that assists homeless youths on Whidbey and plans to open a youth shelter. They sorted supplies and hosted a lunch for the non-profit’s host family youths.

The intra-state missionaries spent their final day working around the grounds for St. Augustine’s to thank the church for hosting them.
