Shorewood Foursquare Church Food Drive Starts Nov. 13
Sue Cross, Administrator for Shorewood Foursquare Church, explains:
â€œWhen we became aware of this food shortage crisis, we just had to get involved. We want to help get the word out to everyone in the community, to build awareness, and are asking everyone to bring food donations.â€
According to the White Center Food Bank, they are in a time of extreme need – client numbers are increasing dramatically; they served 1,690 families last month, which is a 66% increase over last year at this time; that includes over 6,000 people fed.
Obviously, the White Center Food Bank needs help.
The Food Drive begins Thursday Nov. 13th, and continues through Dec. 21st. It will be located at Shorewood Foursquare Church & Christian School, which is located at 10300 28th Av SW, Seattle, WA 98146.
There will be a food bin available 24/7 located just outside the entrance to the building for the public to leave their food donations. Shorewood Foursquare Church will also accept monetary donations made out to â€œWhite Center Food Bankâ€ in their office.
White Center Food Bank is asking for donations of holiday foods for the food drive, including:
- Chicken or Turkey Broth
- Gravy Mixes
- Stuffing Mixes
- Fruit Cocktail
- Whole Olives
- Jello or Pudding Mixes
- Canned Pumpkin
- Canned Cranberry Sauce
- Condensed or Evaporated Milk
