At West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) today, barbecuer extraordinaire Michele cooked up barbecue lunches to raise money for WestSide Baby, whose board member Amy Daly-Donovan was there, sporting the traditional yellow T-shirt in honor of WS Baby’s big “Stuff the Bus” diaper drive, now just two weeks away – Sunday, July 22nd (10 am-2 pm, AmericanWest Bank parking lot at 40th/Alaska in The Junction).
Even if you missed the barbecue, there are other ways to help WS Baby assist local families in need. For one – you can have a diaper drive to collect diapers that’ll count toward the “Stuff the Bus” goal. Here’s how. Or, you can participate in someone else’s diaper drive – for example, Center Studio in downtown White Center is offering a diaper-drive yoga class at 8 am on Saturday, July 21: “Bring a package of diapers and enjoy 90 minutes of pure yoga bliss,” says proprietor Lonjina Verdugo. Her studio also is collecting diapers through the 21st, if you just want to drop some off sooner.
Thriftway is having another WestSide Baby-benefiting barbeque on the 21st, too, by the way – 11 am-2 pm. It all goes toward a goal of 50,000 diapers – which will be matched two-for-one by the National Diaper Bank Network. (You can also buy diapers for WS Baby online via its Amazon Wish List.)
