City Calvary Chapel and Shoreline
Seventh-day Adventist volunteers pack
food bags for Ridgecrest families in need
City Calvary Chapel and the Shoreline Seventh-day Adventist Church are once again pairing up to supply weekend groceries for 30 selected Ridgecrest Elementary students.

Only prepackaged, individual serving sized items can be used. Food and funds are donated by these church families and by volunteer food drives.

The food is stored at CCC and packed into bags for delivery to the school.

If you would like to volunteer or donate to this program, contact City Calvary Chapel at 206-709-9416, Heidi Skersies at 206-601-3705 or the Adventist Church at 206-363-2355.

These groups provide food packages to chronically hungry students from low income or homeless households who are at risk of hunger over the weekends when free school meals are unavailable. 

Every Friday students are discretely given a bag of food containing easy to prepare foods which is then tucked into their backpacks and brought home.

Food4KidsShoreline is holding a fundraising 5k run on October 20. It's too late to get a t-shirt but you can still register to run or you can donate. (see previous article)
