NEED FOOD? Again this week, Food Lifeline will distribute free emergency boxes of food to anyone who shows up, 2-5 pm Friday (October 30th) at its South Park HQ, 815 S. 96th.
KEEP ARTS ALIVE: Along with many businesses, arts organizations are struggling, in a time where they can’t host events. So many have turned to online events, and this week you can support one for a West Seattle organization – ArtsWest, the playhouse and gallery in The Junction. Go here to see how to register to be part of it.
NO-CONTACT HALLOWEEN: More decoration locations, and another no-contact trick-or-treat event, have been added to the WSB Halloween page – thanks to everyone who continues sending sightings and announcements!
