Shoreline Bartell Drugs event Sunday with KOMO radio

Bartell Drugs' tradition of helping to fight hunger in the Puget Sound area continues with "Bartell's Community Food Drive," a community partnership with Shoreline-based Food Lifeline.

Bartell's Shoreline store will be the site of a major food donation event on Sunday, May 26, from 2 - 4pm. With on-site appearances by on-air personalities from KOMO Radio, the public is invited to bring their kids to donate a can of food to receive a balloon creation from a balloon artist. The Shoreline store is located at 18420 Aurora Ave N, in Gateway Plaza.

Beginning May 19 through June 1, "Bartell's Community Food Drive" focuses on replenishing local food banks in the summer months when families that normally depend on free or reduced-price school meals may struggle to provide healthy meals at home. Food donations can be made at all Bartells locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties.

Nonperishable food item suggestions include tuna, instant oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, jam, cheese crackers, applesauce and canned fruit.

Other items include baby formula, diapers, baby food (boxes or plastic tubs only) and personal care items such as toothpaste, tooth brushes, tissues, shampoo and conditioner, soap and feminine hygiene products.
