Happy Tuesday! Looking ahead to the rest of today/tonight, as we do most mornings:
GIVEBIG: The one-day donate-a-thon is on, and for the third consecutive year, we have a local list you can use to find the special links for your favorite West Seattle/White Center/South Park nonprofits (and some you might not have realized have local ties). Find the list here – and give by 11:59 pm tonight to help make recipients eligible for part of a “stretch fund.” P.S. Our page also includes information on “Dine Out for Hunger,” with participating White Center restaurants donating part of their proceeds today/tonight to the White Center Food Bank as part of this day of giving.
