NOTE: This event has been postponed. Please stay tuned for a new date.

The B-Town Blog, along with our sister site The White Center Blog, look forward to seeing as many of our Readers and Neighbors as possible on Saturday, Nov. 20th at the White Center Albertsons for a special Thanksgiving-related food and diaper drive: our 3rd Annual Turkeys N’Diapers Fundraiser!

It’ll run from 10am to 3pm, and all donations will go to the White Center Food Bank (food) and WestSide Baby (diapers & baby stuff).

Albertsons is located at 16th Avenue SW and SW 106th Street in White Center.

We’ll be collecting turkeys and diapers (yes, that’s correct: turkeys and diapers!).

Stuffing and canned vegetables and other Thanksgiving-related food items would be greatly appreciated.

Donations in the form of cash and checks (made out directly to “White Center Food Bank” or “WestSide Baby”) will also be gratefully accepted.

The crew will be lead again this year by the blog’s own Mark Neuman and Bart Bryan, with special appearances by other hard-workin’ local bloggers.

And get this – if you’re a local business who wants to get some free publicity, all while helping out your community – for each business that donates over $100 in either cash or goods, we’ll not only post your name in our stories on this event, we’ll link to your website as well!

The White Center Food Bank will make available the food, as they do year-round, to nearby families in need.

The Food Bank works hand-in-hand with WestSide Baby, a nonprofit organization that collects previously-owned items for children and babies and distributes them free of charge to South King County families in need.

In 2008 WestSide Baby served more than 12,000 children.

This is our third consecutive year doing this fundraiser. Previously, we’ve raised over $1,110 (year #1) and $800 (last year), and we’re hoping to eclipse both this year.
