3:10 PM: Here’s who’s welcoming donations in the West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day aftermath:
STUFF THE TRUCK AT HOLY ROSARY: Until 5 pm, a truck is on the north side of Holy Rosary School, off 42nd SW north of SW Genesee, collecting donations for St. Vincent de Paul. Here’s what they’re taking.
Meantime, Alki Elementary’s PTA fundraiser is continuing all weekend:
CLOTHES FOR THE CAUSE: Any time through tomorrow, you can drop items off at the Clothes for the Cause trailer on the southwest side of Alki Elementary, off 59th SW. They’re collecting mostly textile items, as listed here.
STOP ‘N’ SHOP THRIFT STORE: The thrift store at the Senior Center of West Seattle has extended its donation-acceptance hours until 6 pm tonight – just pull up in the alley behind the center (4217 SW Oregon). What they accept is “reusable items, i.e. kitchenware, tools, knickknacks, jewelry, linens, furniture, home decorations, clothing & accessories.”
BOOK DRIVE FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS: No rush for this one – you have almost two weeks to contribute. Details are here. But if you’d like to move those books along today, a truck will be in The Junction until 6 pm, near the Northwest Center truck along the east side of 44th SW between Alaska and Edmunds.
PLANT STARTS: Any seller with leftover peppers, summer squash, tomatoes, cucumber starts can donate them to Solid Ground for local community gardens (including Marra Farm in South Park) – contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
