Give three hours of your time on MLK Day - volunteers needed to collect food for foodbanks

Thursday, December 29, 2011

On Martin Luther King Jr Day, Monday, January 16, 2012, three hours of your time can make a difference in hundreds of lives of local citizens.

That's the day that The Center for Service-Learning and The Foundation 501(c)(3) at Shoreline Community College are sponsoring the 2012 Martin Luther King Day of Service Food Drive.

Your job would be to stand outside a local grocery store and hand shoppers a list of foods they could purchase in the store and donate on their way out.

The food would go to the Hopelink food bank for distribution to Shoreline families in need.

Participating stores are:

  • Central Market, 15505 Westminster Way N
  • Fred Meyer, 18325 Aurora Ave N
  • Safeway, 15332 Aurora Ave N

Volunteers at Top Food and Drug, 1201 N 175th St will collect food for the North Helpline food bank which serves Lake Forest Park, east Shoreline, and north Seattle.

For more information, see the SCC Service Learning website.

Share this information with your organizations - churches, clubs, service organizations.
And plan to shop and donate on that day.
