If you can spare some time and/or food and/or other items … here is your next big chance to give before Thanksgiving. It’s the third year of the grass-roots Lunches With Love project. Its leader Lashanna Williams has this invitation explaining several ways to help:

Hello my sweet Seattleites,

It’s time for Lunches with Love again. Last year we were able to feed many people around the sound and we plan on doing the same this year.

So far we have had donations from Stoneway Construction, The Cuddle Club, and Lafarge-Holcim’s Sales and Concrete Lab.

Volunteers spend the Wednesday before thanksgiving (11.25.15) making paper sack lunches and assembling care packs.

In the evening volunteers take lunches around town to those who need it. (Pike Market park, near the bus stop, outside of shelters, under I-5, alley stoops, along West Marginal … just in human hands)

If you, your officemates, your book club, etc., want to make some sack lunches or drop off lunch supplies – that would also be amazing.

This year our goal is 1,100 lives touched.

Pre-made lunches and supplies can be dropped off to my house – 9319 7th Ave S. – until about 6 pm Wednesday night.

Lunch hints: nothing that needs to be heated. (Sandwich, fruit, veggies, cheese, protein bar, sweet treat..etc)

Living Supplies: Clothes, gloves, blankets, tarps, tents, toothbrushes, reusable water bottles, garbage bags, batteries, flashlights, etc.

If you are interested in making lunches please feel free to come by any time from 11:30 am – 6 pm (Wednesday) and we’ll head out around the sound around 7 pm.

Questions? Email me or call me! Thank you so much for reading and participating if you can.

    so reassuring to know there are people whose focus it to do things for others, especially at this time of year as the weather gets colder and the holidays are on the horizon. i am encouraging people i know to help you out in this endeavor by sending them this link from the ws blog. it is so very meaningful.

    It’s so cold outside, I hope a lot of people can donate gloves, hats, scarves, hoodies, and so on, it makes a difference! Thank you so much!

    This sounds like a wonderful project! You may also want to add handwarmers to the list.

Sorry, comment time is over.
