A group of local citizens have come together to create the Kirkland Nourishing Network, helping some of the most needy Kirkland elementary school kids and their families over the December holiday break. The group is helping real families in our community that don't have enough to eat by trying to fill some gaps in food security in our town. With the assistance of generous members of our community, they are working with Hopelink and Pantry Packs toward more long-term connections to assistance and a hand up.
The food drive asked volunteers to shop for a family and bring the purchased goods to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, kitty-corner across the intersection from 132nd Square Park (132ND Ave NE & NE 132ND St) on one of two December drop off dates, December 17th and December 27th. The Kirkland Firefighters’ Benevolent Association (KFFBA) and several Eastside youth sports organizations have also stepped up with support and volunteers.
