ORCA HALF, DAY 2: Starting at 7:30 am, about 350 runners will leave this half-marathon‘s starting line in Lincoln Park in waves, headed for Don Armeni Boat Ramp. No road/lane closures. This is the second of two days for the Orca Half; here’s our coverage of the first.
CHURCHES: Many continue streaming, along with in-person services. Here are the newest links for 20+ West Seattle churches’ services.
WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm on California between Oregon and Alaska. Scroll down the page at this link to find the vendor list and map for this week. (The market is a WSB sponsor.)
DONATION DRIVE: 11 am-3 pm outside Alki UCC (6115 SW Hinds):
Alki United Church of Christ (Alki UCC) has joined St. Vincent de Paul and the Westside Interfaith Network (WIN) to support 13 Nicaraguan families resettling in White Center as recent immigrés to the United States. We welcome them to our larger community and hope to be instrumental in helping them thrive in their new homes.
Children’s school clothing donations are critically needed. We call on our generous neighbors to look through closets and bring clean, new-or-gently used children’s clothing to the drive, outside the church’s main entrance.
As always, we welcome non-perishable food and hygiene items to be distributed through the White Center Food Bank. Suggestions include: aseptic and nut milks, cereal, peanut butter, tuna fish, pasta and sauces, canned soup, chili, and beans (poptop preferred).
Donations of Men’s Casual/Work Clothes are also needed, as well as NEW socks — the clothing item most requested by our neighbors experiencing homelessness.
