Last Days of Food Drive

Help us fill our goal of ten food boxes for Seattle's Union Gospel Mission. In our state, nearly 300,00 children live in a household that struggles to put three nutritious meals on the table each day. A food box can feed a family of four - for a whole week!

Here is a list of items needed to complete each box

Peanut butter (jars)

Instant Potatoes (small box)

Mac and cheese (boxes)

Peaches (cans)

Cooking oil (small bottle)

Chicken (can)

Grape jelly

Rice (1 pound bags)

Powdered milk (small box)



Please place donated items in the box in the main hall. Or if your family or group of friends wants to get all the items to complete a box, you can pick up an empty box from the office. If you have other non-perishable food items that you wish to donate, there is also a barrel in the main hall for that purpose. Union Gospel Mission will pick up all items on December 19.

Thanks for you help!
