“It is a festive holiday meal for those who otherwise might not be able to celebrate,” said Kate Hoffman, Marketing & Communications Manager. “Yesterday was no exception with our biggest event to-date, serving 250-300 attendees of all ages.”

Kate adds:

Along with a full Thanksgiving meal, attendees were welcome to take donated hats, gloves and hygiene kits containing shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste and other basic items.

The Thanksgiving meal involved:

  • Eighteen 26+ pound turkeys
  • 40 pumpkin pies
  • 200 hygiene kits
  • Over 225 hats, scarves and gloves

A big thank-you goes to the more than ninety volunteers who helped us create a meaningful holiday for those in need. We’re also grateful to the Burien/White Center Rotary, Abbott Construction and the Sazan Group for donating hygiene kits.
