Update on North Helpline food bank at the summer social

July 31st, 2011 · No Comments

We put up a post last week about helping the North Helpline food bank by donating at the Maple Leaf Summer Social.

Here’s an update from Lynda at North Helpline:

Thanks again very much for your article about the food bank on the Maple Leaf Life blog.  Most of the people who brought us donations at the Ice Cream Social mentioned that they had read your posting—wow the power of the press!!  We were able to collect 66 pounds of food, and $126.

Also, we had a great time—friendly people, great band, and delicious looking ice cream, and a good location (right next to Cloud City Coffee)—I hope we get to do it again next year.

The food bank, which serves northeast Seattle including Maple Leaf and Wedgwood, will have a table Thursday evening at Magnuson Park’s outdoor movie (this time it’s Top Gun). Seating’s at 7 p.m., movie starts at dusk.

North Helpline will be onsite at the Seattle Outdoor Movies at Magnuson Park next Thursday, August 4th, collecting food and meeting and greeting our neighbors. Look for our booth and bring a can or two of nonperishable food along if you can!

Admission is $5.00. There will be trivia, interactive games and prizes. North Helpline will also be raffling off a $50.00 gift certificate to COA Mexican Eatery & Tequileria in Maple Leaf. For every two cans of food a person brings, they will receive a raffle ticket. No limit on the tickets so bring all the cans you can! The drawing will be held Friday, August 5th and the winner will be notified by phone.
