MY FRIENDS! I AM HAPPY TO SHOP FOR YOU. JUST NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU BY [TUESDAY] AT THE LATEST. PLEASE PASS THIS ON -- Penny Sweet
We had a great, Kirkland outpouring of support that made real Thanksgivings possible for nearly a hundred families in our community! The looks of awe on the faces of the parents and kids were priceless. Now, we really need your help.
This need, here, so close to so much abundance is our hometown opportunity to help our neighbors. There is nothing simpler than shopping for food that will be on the table of a needy family the night you deliver it. If you are hungry, there are few things more important than that.
This is the biggest challenge of the year. A lot longer than Thanksgiving and more families. If you can’t support a box, maybe a couple of your friends would go in on a box with you.
We have spread the word each year to meet the need, and we can do it again this year. Even if you are unable to help, please pass this appeal along to your friends and neighbors, so we can help all the identified families this long, holiday season. As usual, the counselors and teachers in our elementary schools identify the most needy, and we match your contribution up with an identified family.
This year our Club is providing support to supplement the boxes. That’s a great boost. If you can also directly support the effort with a box of food, that would be super.
Our drop-off date is Wednesday, December 16th. Again, we have sites in the north and south of Kirkland. We, of course, need donations; but we also can use a bit of help at the drop-off/pick-up sites. Instructions are on the web sites, just click through and sign up!
Thank you and bless you,
- - Kirkland Nourishing Network
P.S. There is limited ability for Eastside Timebankers and Kiwanis volunteers to shop for those that will be out of town. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about this.
P.P.S. Did you remember to pass this along to others that might be able to help?
