Though most holiday-geared donation drives are wrapped up before Christmas Eve, here are two things you can do tonight to help local food banks:
BENEFIT SHOW FOR WHITE CENTER FOOD BANK: Ann just sent word of a benefit tonight at the Shipwreck Tavern “featuring several bands including Death’s 3 Daughters, Maurice and His Thing, Ian Prebo, and Lasla. Starts at 8 pm, no cover charge but bring food or cash donations for the food bank. Shipwreck is located at 4210 SW Admiral Way.”
BRING WEST SEATTLE FOOD BANK DONATIONS TO THE HELMSTETLER FAMILY SPECTACULAR: They’ve been collecting all season, including a donation bin right in front of the music-synched-lights-adorned house at 3908 SW Charlestown, and tonight/tomorrow night you’ll be offered free cocoa if you stop by. Here’s our original story on that.
