When you are out in The Junction doing your last-minute holiday shopping – and beyond – you will see something new in 14 shops: In-store donation boxes like the one above, to rev up the fundraising campaign to help Junction merchants pay the dramatically increasing bill for providing you with “free” parking. That bill – taxes, rent, fees – will total almost a quarter-million dollars next year, says Junction Association executive director Lora Radford. So every few bucks helps. And while supplies last, a donation of at least $5 will get you a classic Junction tree ornament from a rare cache that recently turned up!
The donation boxes are at these West Seattle Junction businesses:
8 Limbs Yoga Centers
Emerald Water Anglers (WSB sponsor)
Jan’s Beauty Supply
Next to Nature
Northwest Art & Frame
Pegasus Book Exchange
Stop n’ Shop
Thunder Road Guitars (WSB sponsor)
Verizon West Seattle
You can drink beer to support the lots, too.
