Ridgecrest Neighborhood exceeds their Food Drive goal

Friday, January 4, 2019

The Ridgecrest Neighborhood Association not only met their goal to collect 1000 pounds of food for Shoreline Hopelink - they exceeded it!

Over a two month food drive project during November and December they collected 1189.6 pounds of food and turned it over to Shoreline Hopelink for their food bank located at 17837 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline 98133 in the apartment building behind Ronald Methodist Church.

WE DID IT! Thanks to you, we beat our goal and did something great for the folks that use the food bank.

They had major help from two local businesses in downtown Ridgecrest: Café Aroma and the Ridgecrest Pub. Both businesses were collection points for food.

With the cafe opening early and the pub staying open late, food drop off was possible from 5:30am to midnight, seven days a week.

James Pabiniak, Hopelink Shoreline Food Bank Supervisor, responded with these comments.

The food provided from this drive goes a long way to feeding the hungry families we have in Shoreline. It means so much when the community can step up and donate high quality, hearty foods that are mostly within date. 
December was our busiest month in our food bank yet, and receiving their food went a long way to ensuring that everyone was able to receive enough food this holiday season and especially for the months to come when donations usually slow down.
 
If you have food for the Shoreline Food Bank, drop it off at the front desk at Shoreline Hopelink, 17837 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline 98133
