Big holiday help for the people served by the West Seattle Food Bank – on Friday, we were there as Nucor delivered tidings of great joy: A truck full of food donated by Nucor employees, and monetary donations totaling more than $20,000. Below, from left, Ryan Knoyle and Gerrit Reed from Nucor, and Eagle Hilton and Jason Wissbrod from Benchmark Industrial Services, which volunteered its trailer so the delivery could be done in one trip:
If you would like to help WS Food Bank – here’s the latest: When we last checked in with executive director Fran Yeatts, to ask about their biggest needs, her reply: “Turkeys and hams would be really appreciated to help with our holiday food distribution. One of the biggest ongoing needs for us is formula, specifically Similac Advance in the 12.4-ounce cans, and diapers, size 3, 4, 5, or 6. We can always use non-perishable food like canned protein, soup, fruit.” The food bank’s location and hours are here.
