REMINDER: Burien’s monthly B-Town Beat Art & Music Walk will be collecting donations for Transform Burien’s food and clothing bank at tonight’s event (Thursday, Nov. 7), which runs from 6 – 9 p.m.

This month over 25 local business and venues between 4th Ave. S.W. And 10th Ave. S.W. will participate in the Walk by hosting visual art, dance, photography, music, crafts, and other various forms of art. The Highline Historical Society will also participate in the event with their Hope in Hard Times exhibit at 216 S.W. 153rd Street.

Here’s more info from a press release we received Thursday morning:

Transform Burien is a local not­for­profit organization that was founded in the early 2000’s as a cooperative effort to unify christian churches in Burien. Operating out of The Annex, the former Burien Community Center on the corner of S.W. 146th Street and 4th Ave. S.W., Transform Burien opens a soup kitchen, clothing bank, and food bank that serves hundreds of people in need in the Highline area every week. The group also partners with King County Mobile Medical Unit to provide free medical care twice a month and free dental care once a month and hosts a back to school back pack giveaway, a Christmas toy drive, and other special events throughout the year. Transform Burien operates entirely off donations and volunteer’s time to fulfill their mission of serving those in need in the Highline area.

Attendees of the November 7th B­Town Beat Music and Art Walk are encouraged to bring non­perishable food, blankets, tarps, sleeping bags, and gently used coats and winter clothing to donate to Transform Burien as they prepare for the holidays and winter months. All donations can be dropped off at participating Music and Art Walk businesses. In addition, B­Town Beat volunteer coordinators will accept donations, answer questions and hand out walking maps in front of HomeTask building at 611 S.W. 152nd Street.

This month over 25 local business and venues between 4th Ave. S.W. And 10th Ave. S.W. will participate in the Walk by hosting visual art, dance, photography, music, crafts, and other various forms of art. The Highline Historical Society will also participate in the event with their Hope in Hard Times exhibit at 216 S.W. 153rd Street.
