West Seattle Food Bank

Some of you may already know that we are big supporters of the West Seattle Food Bank.  Along with providing groceries, the West Seattle Food Bank also provides a variety of infant and toddler supplies, pet food, personal hygiene items, books, gardening information and supplies, voter registration services, and referrals to other social services.  Whew!  That is a whole lot of good that is being done for our community!

We understand that times are especially tight for many right now.  Being able to donate time or money may not be an option for some.  But we have great news!  There is an alternate way to support the West Seattle Food Bank.  We were delighted to read this blurb in their latest newsletter:

“Your receipts from Metropolitan Market and West Seattle Thriftway can be turned into cash.  Send us your receipts and we will then submit them to these stores for a 1% donation of the pretax total.”

Holy smokes!  Just think of how quickly that would add up if we could get all of the shoppers of these fine supermarkets to just mail in their receipts.  The moment it takes to address an envelope can add up to so much more.  Please participate if you can.  Better yet, encourage your neighbors to do so, too!
