Help ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ during Letter Carriers’ Food Drive this Saturday

Food-Drive-'15-(RGB)-flat

The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct its 23rd annual food drive this Saturday, May 9.

Letter carriers will collect non-perishable food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes.

To help out, just load up the blue plastic bag with non-perishable food and leave it at your mailbox.

This is the nation’s largest single-day food drive, and is held annually on the second Saturday in May in 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam.

With the extreme weather experienced this winter by much of the country, along with the economic struggles many Americans face, the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive never has been more important.

“Letter carriers are honored to be able to help people in need,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “On a daily basis we see the needs in the communities we serve, and we believe it’s important to help meet those needs.”

Hunger affects about 49 million people around the country, including millions of children and senior citizens. And one in four households with a member currently serving in the U.S. military turns to the Feeding America network for food assistance.

Pantry shelves filled up through winter-holiday generosity often are bare by late spring. And, with most school meal programs not available during summer months, millions of children must find alternate sources of nutrition.

On May 9, as they deliver mail, the nation’s 175,000 letter carriers will collect donations left by residents near their mail boxes. People are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods such as canned soup; canned vegetables; canned meats and fish; pasta; peanut butter; rice or cereal next to their mailbox before the regular mail delivery on Saturday.

Carriers will bring the food to local food banks, pantries or shelters, including many affiliated with Feeding America, which is a national partner in the drive, as are the U.S. Postal Service, United Way Worldwide, the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, the AFL-CIO, Valpak and Valassis.

People who have questions about the drive in their area should ask their letter carrier, contact their local post office, or go to nalc.org/food, facebook.com/StampOutHunger or twitter.com/StampOutHunger.

‘GiveBig’ to help local non-profits on Tuesday, May 5

GB_Flyer_v7

The Seattle Foundation’s fifth annual day of giving event, GiveBIG, returns next week and is expected to provide a big boost to 1,600 area nonprofits, several of which support the Burien neighborhood including:

The one-day online event will take place between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, May 5, with the goal of inspiring people to give generously to their favorite local nonprofits representing the Foundation’s seven elements of a healthy community – arts & culture, basic needs, economy, education, environment, health & wellness, neighborhoods & communities – as well as global health.

“Seattle is the country’s fastest growing city, creating incredible economic growth for our region. Yet we know that this prosperity is not shared amongst all of our citizens and as a community foundation, we’re focused on reducing inequities and ensuring everyone is on a path to success and self-sufficiency,” said Seattle Foundation President & CEO Tony Mestres.

“GiveBIG is a call to action in response to these inequities. It’s only one day, but it’s a day that can really make a big difference for the nonprofits which are doing so much to make our region a stronger, more vibrant place for all,” Mestres added.

Since the Seattle Foundation introduced GiveBIG in 2011, more than $34.9 million representing more than 175,000 in individual online gifts – has been raised benefiting more than 1,600 local nonprofits. Adding Seattle Foundation’s “stretch “dollars and challenge grants made to nonprofit organizations, the GiveBIG total raised to date is more than $40 million.

This year’s theme is “A Day of Champions,” which celebrates the many champions in the community who work every day to improve education, healthcare, the arts and more – as well as those who work tirelessly to bring hope to neighbors in need.

Mestres notes that while our region leads the nation on many important economic and quality-of-life measures, Seattle ranks 40th in charitable giving amongst major metropolitan areas, according to a 2014 Chronicle of Philanthropy report. “I challenge everyone to direct the same spirit and grit that has fueled the region’s economic success to ignite the generosity and investment necessary to make this a stronger, more vibrant community for all.”

Making this day even more impactful to participating nonprofits is that every donation made through the Seattle Foundation website (http://www.seattlefoundation.org/) will grow in size, in one or more of the following ways:

  • Stretch Fund Boost – Each donation will receive a boost from a stretch pool funded by the Seattle Foundation and GiveBIG sponsors. Each donation up to $2,500 per organization is eligible. The amount of each nonprofit’s share of the stretch pool is based on the percentage of donations the nonprofit receives of the total online contributions received. The more each nonprofit receives, the bigger the boost. Nonprofits must raise a minimum of $100 to receive stretch pool funds.
  • Golden Ticket – For each donation received, the donor will be entered into a “Golden Ticket” drawing conducted 10 times throughout the day. Winners will receive a $100 Starbucks or Taco Time gift card, and an additional $1,000 awarded in their name to their designated nonprofit.
  • Global Development Match Grant – Participating local organizations working to improve lives in developing countries are eligible for a match of either $2,500 or $5,000 – depending on the size of the organization’s annual budget. Participating organizations must reach the $2,500 or $5,000 donation goal in order to receive the match. This Global Challenge Grant is provided by the Seattle International Foundation.

This year’s theme is “A Day of Champions,” which celebrates the many champions in the community who work every day to improve education, healthcare, the arts and more – as well as those who work tirelessly to bring hope to neighbors in need.

GiveBIG participants make credit card donations through the Seattle Foundation’s online Giving Center, which includes information on more than 1,600 local nonprofit organizations, as well as locally based global development organizations through the Seattle International Foundation (http://seaif.org).

Support for the 2015 GiveBIG stretch pool is provided by the Seattle Foundation, its fund-holders, as well as GiveBIG sponsors and partners. This year GiveBIG is supported by presenting partners KING 5, Microsoft, Seattle International Foundation, Seattle Sounders FC and Wyncote Foundation NW. Lead sponsors include BECU, The Boeing Company, The Medina Foundation, Millenial Media, The Seattle Times, Sonya & Tom Campion, Starbucks, #Tagboard, Trifilm and Trilogy International Partners.

Additional supporters are Apex Foundation, John Bates & Carolyn Corvi, Colonial Consulting, Deloitte, The Hayes Family, KPMG, The Mestres Family, Moss Adams, Outerwall, Ann Ramsay-Jenkins , Safeco, Tableau Foundation and The Sheri & Les Biller Family Foundation. Friends of GiveBIG include Alaska Airlines, Biking Billboards. The Black Family Foundation, Stacy and Marty Chilberg. Clark Nuber. Davis Wright Tremaine. Delta Dental of Washington. Dorsey Whitney, Jean Enersen Health and Wellness Foundation, Mark and Mitchell Dyce-Ryan, Kate Janeway and Howard Wright, K&L Gates, Dave & Sue Holt, Marrella Fund. Metropolitan Grill “Guess the Dow” Fund, Nova Fisheries, ORS Impact, Linda S. Park, Brad Smith and Kathy Surace-Smith, Puget Sound Energy, Taco Time Northwest, TransFirst, United Way King County, Washington Women’s Foundation, and Bob and Jan Whitsitt.

Additional GiveBIG information and updates are available at http://www.seattlefoundation.org/GiveBIG.

The Seattle Foundation’s mission is to foster powerful and rewarding philanthropy to make King County a stronger, more vibrant community for all. Our goal as a community foundation is to simplify giving and strengthen the impact of philanthropy for the more than 1,200 individuals, families and businesses we serve. We made $85 million in grants in 2014 and offer an online Giving Center at www.seattlefoundation.org to provide current information on community issues and nonprofit organizations.

Northwest Hope & Healing’s Style ’15 Fashion Show Benefit will be April 30

NWHopeHealing009

Advertiser 3 Wishes in Olde Burien wants to remind all our Readers that they can check out select fashions from this event at their store located at 929 SW 152nd Street; for more info please call (206) 248-3332.

On April 30, two dozen breast cancer survivors will show their strength as they model the newest spring trends during Style ’15, Northwest Hope & Healing’s 13th Annual Fashion Show Benefit.

The women will be accompanied by male models, men who have a close tie to the cause and have been touched in some way by breast cancer. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Northwest Hope & Healing (NWHH) Patient Assistance Fund in an effort to offer financial assistance to women battling breast cancer in the Puget Sound area.

Over the last 15 years, the Northwest Hope & Healing Patient Assistance fund has awarded grants to more than 2,200 women to help them get through breast cancer, and the annual fashion show has raised over $900,000 over the past twelve years, with a 2015 fundraising goal of $150,000. Doors open for the show at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Showbox SODO, 1700 1st Ave S, Seattle WA 98134.

This moving evening is filled with heartfelt camaraderie and emotional connections between survivors and supporters alike and will include an overview of NWHH’s Healing Programs, three prize drawings, the chance to make donations to fund-a-need (which provides essentials like groceries, gas, childcare or rent), followed by a runway fashion show featuring outfits from some of the hottest boutiques in the Seattle area including: Carmilia’s, Coastal Surf Boutique, West Seattle Runner, Like Love, Canopy Blue, 3 Wishes, Jarbo, Scotch & Soda, Calypso St. Barth, Queen Anne Dispatch, Tannya Bernadette, and hair design by stylists from Ola Salon. This event is sponsored and supported by funding from Filament Advisors, Genentech and the Swedish Cancer Institute.

Kristina Dahl, diagnosed in 2005, says “When I was diagnosed with cancer, my daughter was two years old. While I underwent treatment, it took a village of friends and family to keep me afloat, helping with childcare, meals, and so much more. Fighting cancer was hard enough, a woman going through it shouldn’t have to do it alone.” Shari Sewell, Executive Director of NWHH says “The goal of NWHH is to help women get back on track financially, while they deal with the emotional and physical effects of cancer. The fashion show allows us to celebrate survivors while raising funds to provide for them.”

Linda Sabee, proprietor of Carmilia’s in West Seattle has been involved with the event since its inception and will once again return for the 13th consecutive year. Tickets prices range from $50 to $1,000. $50 for General Admission at 7pm; and $125 for VIP Admission at 6:30 p.m. All VIP guests will receive a thank you gift, appetizers and a wine reception.

3 Wishes Boutique offering 10% discount for Soles4Souls Shoe Drive through April 30

3WishesStore1

Soles4Souls_thumbAdvertiser 3 Wishes Boutique, located in Olde Burien, is offering a 10% discount to anyone who donates a pair of ‘gently used’ shoes to their Soles4Souls Shoe Drive.

But this special offer expires on April 30, so you’d best go through your closet soon, as this deal will save you money AND help those in need.

3 Wishes Boutique is located at 929 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien.

According to the Soles4Souls website:

Soles4Souls collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. “Soles4Souls’ other two divisions, Clothes4Souls and Hope4Souls, provide the same relief and support through clothing and other necessities.

In the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that hit Southeast Asia, Wayne Elsey, the Founder of Soles4Souls® Inc., felt compelled to do something. Like many of us, he did not know what to do. He was at home one night, watching TV and he saw a picture of a single shoe washing up on the beach. That triggered a few calls to some other executives in the footwear industry and the subsequent donation of a quarter of a million shoes to victims in the devastated countries.

A few months later when Katrina hit, Wayne called the same group of friends, and through our continued support, we have sent over a million pairs of shoes down to the gulf coast communities affected by the hurricane. In all honesty, he admits that he did not expect such an immediate and successful turnout. This left him wondering, why not start a non-profit and do this all the time? One year later, Soles4Souls was formally created.

4th annual ‘Burien Bites’ food fundraiser will be Thursday, April 9

BurienBitesHome_2015

Burien Bites – one of Burien’s most delectable events of the year – is returning on Thursday, April 9, from 5 – 9 p.m.!

The event will be held at HomeTask, located at 611 SW 152nd Street.

SCHEDULE:

  • 5 – 9 p.m.: The Bite!
  • 8 p.m.: After Party Starts
  • 9 p.m.: Awards at HomeTask

This is a community event, created to help raise money for local charities, where participants can get to know their neighbors, mingle and try specialty fare at local participating restaurants.

People will have the opportunity to dine around town and taste different “bites,” all for just $2 a bite. Tickets for the $2 bites will be available for purchase before the event (at HomeTask or Discover Burien), or at the participating restaurants.

Participants can then redeem the tickets at the participating restaurant for their special bite. This event will allow people to experience new, different and fun restaurants that they may not have tried before.

“We are always trying to find new ways to help the community and organizing Burien Bites is a fantastic way for people to have fun and be generous towards those who need our help,” said HomeTask CEO Jerrod Sessler and founder of the event. “It also brings our community together which is all about people building relationships.”

You can support your community by helping raise money and tasting delicious food. Each ticket represents money that the restaurants will be able to donate to a charity of their choice.

Not only do participants have the opportunity to try different bites at participating restaurants, but they also have the chance to vote for their favorite bite. Burien Bites has a custom web app that allows participants to cast their votes and submit feedback for each of the restaurants. The past 2014 winner was Maven Mercantile. Any local restaurant from Burien can participate and give a taste of their distinctive food that they offer.

“We have invested or donated over $14,000 into local charities since starting Burien Bites, but the success is far greater than a check,” Sessler added. “The people of Burien come out to eat local and come together as a community, and that’s the greatest success of all. Burien Bites and HomeTask are contributing to making Burien great!”

PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT BURIEN CHARITIES:

  • Discover Burien
  • Highline Area Food Bank
  • Highline Schools Foundation
  • HomeTask Cares Foundation
  • New Futures
