Here’s a seasonal plea: “We need your turkeys!”
Last Thanksgiving North Helpline, the food bank that serves northeast Seattle, including Maple Leaf, Wedgwood and View Ridge, served over 6,500 needy neighbors in the weeks leading up to Turkey Day.
They were helped by the Lake City Fred Meyer, which hosted a Turkey Drive last year and will do so again this weekend. They are across the street from the food bank, whose address is 13000 Lake City Way N.E.
This year’s drive is this weekend.
Be sure to take advantage of our collaboration with Lake City Fred Meyer for a “fill the truck” turkey drive on Friday November 16, Saturday November 17, and Sunday November 18th.
Drive hours are are Friday 12 noon to 5:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 11a.m. to 4.m. Get a coupon from a food bank volunteer at Fred Meyer and get a free turkey if you purchase $150 worth of goods, or a reduced price on a turkey if you purchase $100 worth or $50.
You can also drop donated turkeys off at the food bank Tuesday – Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. or on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
We also need funds! With our local economy struggling, donations of all kinds have been extremely low. Your contribution can make a huge difference for those in need. Donations can be made via our website.
