The Food Bank @ St. Mary’s is happy to announce that we were recently awarded a grant by The Puyallup Tribe for our Baby/Toddler Corner! This wonderful gift will allow us to purchase much needed baby formula, baby food and diapers for low income families with infants and toddlers in Seattle. We are extremely grateful for the generosity of The Puyallup Tribe in awarding us this grant! Our Director, Alison Pence, had the pleasure of picking the check up from Puyallup Tribe Gaming Advisory Commission Administrative Assistant Eric Smith last week. Thank you so very much!
The Food Bank could use some nutritional supplement drinks such as Ensure, Boost, Kirkland (Costco) brand, etc. for our elderly and chronically ill clients. These do not often come through the normal donation stream. If you could share some of them with us, we would be grateful. Feel free to drop them by during normal business hours, M-F 9 am to 4 pm, Sat. 10-1. Many thanks.
We could use a couple of picnic tables with benches at the Food Bank. Even used in great condition would work, they don’t have to be new. They will be used to feed our volunteers during their shifts. As you know, space is VERY, very tight inside the Walk-In Food Line area and having picnic tables outside will really help.
Please give Alison a call at 206-324-7100, ext. 21 if you have one (or more) to donate. Many thanks!
