Now that it’s March, it’s a particularly important time of year for you to help the two food banks that serve our area – the West Seattle Food Bank and White Center Food Bank (whose service area includes part of WS). The Feinstein Challenge is under way, a national program in which the food banks participate, with donations counting extra as a result. Here’s the official announcement:
The White Center Food Bank and West Seattle Food Bank are seeing a record number of families come to their doors for assistance. During March and April your donations to help neighbors in need can go farther.
For the 15th consecutive year, Allan Shawn Feinstein will divide $1,000,000 among hunger relief agencies nationwide through his Feinstein Challenge. All donations made between March 1 and April 30th, 2011, and that are specifically designated “Feinstein Challenge,” will count towards the challenge total and help these agencies receive a larger percentage of the million dollars.
For the White Center Food Bank, donations may be mailed to 10829 8th Avenue SW, Seattle, WA 98146.
