A breath of cold air

Gil Condon exhales cigarette smoke and cold breath while keeping warm by a fire in the Camp Unity homeless encampment at the Woodinville Universalist Unitarian Church in Woodinville, Wednesday December 4, 2013. The fire pit is owned by the church, who also lets the residents of Camp Unity stay inside if the temperature remains below freezing for more than four hours. About 11 of the 57 people who stay in the camp took up that option last night. Camp Unity just moved to the location from Bellevue and say the use of the fire pit is a welcome blessing. "This has turned into the de-facto meeting space. It's really bringing the camp together," said Shawn Nelson, operations supervisor. Donations of wood or meals are always welcome; for more information, visit campunityeastside.com
