WS Rotary Club will meet at The Cask campaigning for the WS Food Bank Oct. 5

On Friday October 5 the West Seattle Rotary Club will meet at “The Cask” located at 2350 California Ave SW from 5 PM till 7PM. They are asking the community to stop by to meet their local Rotarians and drop off a food donation for the West Seattle Food Bank. They will have a donation barrel set up at the front door.

The West Seattle Food Bank serves around 900 families a week and consistently distributes over 100,000 pounds of food each month. The West Seattle Food Bank purchases about 12% of the food they distribute, and relies on local businesses, grocery stores, farmer’s markets and individual food drives for the rest.

While all donations help, a wish list from the West Seattle Food Bank includes:

  • Diapers
  • Baby formula
  • Protein items
  • Reusable, Paper & Plastic Bags
  • Canned soup
  • Ensure
  • Pet Food
  • Hygiene items
  • Fresh produce
  • Office supplies like copy paper

Rotary members, as volunteers, conduct projects to address today’s humanitarian challenges, including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, and environmental concerns while encouraging high standards in all vocations. Rotary members strive to build goodwill and peace, and provide humanitarian service in their communities and throughout the world.

The Rotary Club of West Seattle utilizes five avenues of service: Club, Vocational, International, New Generations and Community to connect with the community. They are pleased to give back to the community in many ways. If readers are interested in Rotary, and or would like to contribute to the Foundation, visit the website to learn more.
