HELPING: Food/clothing drive on Sunday – see what’s ‘especially appreciated, rarely donated’

(Alki UCC photo from January donation drive)

Alki UCC was going to host its next food/clothing drive earlier this month – but got snowed out. So it’s now rescheduled to this Sunday. Here’s the announcement we just received:

Alki UCC Winter Food/Men’s Casual Clothes Drive and Call for Socks this Sunday, February 28
10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Outside in our front courtyard at 6115 SW Hinds

Last month our generous community donated more than 1,200 lbs. of food. Let’s top that!

Non-perishable donations are distributed through the White Center Food Bank. Suggestions include:

• Canned Meat/Soup/Fruit (pop-top cans, if possible)
• Rice, Noodles, Peanut Butter, Oats, etc.
• Stove Top Stuffing

The following items are especially appreciated and rarely donated:

• Boxed Milk
• Cooking Oil
• Sandwich Bread
• Sugar & Flour
• Clearly labeled packets of pet food.

Essential Supplies are also needed:

• Toilet Paper
• Diapers/Similac Formula/Baby Wipes
• Can Openers
• Personal hygiene items
• Hand Sanitizer

Donations of Men’s Casual/Work Clothes are also being taken, as well as NEW socks — the clothing item most requested by our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

    I arrived last time at 10 am thinking someone would carry the food from my car.  No one was around so I knocked on the door.  Someone came but said they were still having their church service. Maybe schedule for end of church service so there is less contact in these covid times!

      That’s an excellent suggestion, thank you. I apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your donation,

Sorry, comment time is over.
