West Seattle Blog… | YOU CAN HELP: 2 donation drives Saturday in the West Seattle Junction

We continue to identify ways to help those in need. This Saturday at The Junction you have two options:

DRIVE-UP FOOD DRIVE: Atticus, an 8th grade student Hope Lutheran, is hosting this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Hope property off SW Oregon east of the 42nd SW:

I’m doing a Covid-Safe grocery campaign to help the West Seattle Food Bank during the holiday season. Just pull up and pop your trunk! Donations are also welcome. Thank you for helping me support our community members during these times.

Also on Saturday:

FOOD / BOOK DRIVE FOR FARMERS: ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery accepts for this trip “masked, contactless charges at the front and rear entrance of our building from 12:00 to 17:00 on Saturday” for this trip:

Since the start in May Washing masks has collected more than 17,600 masks, over $ 10,000 in school supplies, 20 full supplies of groceries, bedding, childcare and stationery; and $ 1,000 in monetary donations to farming communities affected by Covid-19 and the forest fires this summer.

This December we have the heart of Washington Drive: food & books for farm workers in Washington. The Food Drive is designed to address the food shortages faced by many of these communities, while the books are meant to be an expression of love and support for immigrant youth and a reminder that they are important. We have set up a special book list (all with BIPOC protagonists and many bilingual or in Spanish) through the Bookshop website so that all proceeds can go to an independent bookstore (we encourage people to buy through the Estrelita Library, so too a black bookstore benefits from this bookstore).

The food list is here. ArtsWest is at 4711 California; The back entrance is on the 44th / Alaska parking lot south of KeyBank.
