The bulbs around the Food Bank are starting to peek up! That is always a good sign spring is not far away! With it comes feelings of happiness and hope.
If you are looking for volunteer opportunities as the weather gets better, please do think of us. We can always use the help. There are so many things to do, nice people to meet and work with and you will enjoy your time with us. Please give Beverly a call at the office, 206-324-7100, ext. 18. She can tell you what we need help with and when.
Keeping those spring thoughts in your head! We’ll be surrounded by flowers soon!
