In addition to the big “West Seattle for Japan” multi-business benefit next Sunday, the West Seattle Academy “flash mob” on Thursday, and the neighborhood garage sale on April 2-3 – here are four more local efforts to help/honor quake survivors and victims:
WEST SEATTLE FABRIC COMPANY: Our community’s one-and-only fabric store is donating 10 percent of its proceeds to Red Cross relief efforts in Japan, daily through Sunday. (Proprietor Monica Skov says this started today.) West Seattle Fabric Company is at 2210 California SW.
VIGIL FOR JAPAN ON MONDAY: Also in the Admiral District, this vigil has just been announced:
Admiral Congregational Church, UCC, will be holding a candlelight vigil for Japan on Monday, March 28, 2011. The vigil will take place in the church sanctuary at 4320 SW Hill Street. The service of prayer, silence and hope will begin at 7:33 p.m., the time of sunset on March 28. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
LA RUSTICA BENEFIT NEXT MONDAY: From the Beach Drive Italian restaurant:
Monday, March 28th, La Rustica will be open for dinner to raise money for The Red Cross Japan Relief fund. We will be serving dinner from 5-9:30 pm. All proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross Relief effort. No reservations required just first come first serve. We are located at 4100 Beach Drive.
