COMMUNITY GIVING: West Seattle girls help Northwest Harvest fight hunger


Thanks to Lynda Sullivan for the photo and report:

I wanted to get a shoutout to some local girls (their families and a few friends) that volunteered their afternoon at Northwest Harvest in Kent. Several of the girls are the McCaffrey Bobcats and play in the West Seattle Soccer Club together. They bagged, tied, packed and boxed up over 4,500 pounds of rice over the course of the afternoon. The rice is donated by companies in bulk and needs to be sorted for distribution to local food banks in Washington State. They all had a blast and everyone was eager to know when they could come back and volunteer again.

For anyone that is interested, Northwest Harvest in Kent welcomes volunteer groups of any size. The age requirement is 9 years old (or in the 3rd grade), must be accompanied by a parent/guardian if under the age of 16. For volunteer information contact Jennifer Chew at 206-923-7453 or

The local food banks served by NW Harvest include three in our area, according to the map on the NWH websiteWest Seattle FB, White Center FB, and Paradise of Praise FB in Highland Park.

    What a wonderful way for these girls and their families to spend the afternoon. Thank you to each and everyone of one of you who made this time at NW Harvest possible. I appreciate your work and so do so many people that are grateful for the food they will receive.
