WS Kiwanis Canned Food Drive is Saturday, April 6th

Information from Kiwanis of West Seattle

The Kiwanis of West Seattle is bringing the spirit of service alive in West Seattle by hosting a canned food drive to benefit the West Seattle Food Bank on Saturday April 6th from 9am to 3pm. The canned food drive will take place at select West Seattle grocery stores including Metropolitan Market, PCC, Jefferson Square QFC and Morgan Street Thriftway. All West Seattle community members are encouraged to come out and support this worthy cause.

For the past several years, West Seattle Kiwanis, alongside members of local high school Key Clubs and Scout Troops, have focused their efforts on Kiwanis ONE Day to help feed local families. All items collected will go to the West Seattle Food Bank.

These activities are being held as part of Kiwanis ONE Day, a global volunteer action day uniting the entire Kiwanis family, including Kiwanis, Circle K, Key Club, Builder’s Club, Aktion Club, K-Kids and Kiwanis Junior. On this day, more than 25 local volunteers are expected to join nearly 600,000 volunteers around the world in devoting a few hours to hands-on volunteer service. Kiwanis expects that Kiwanis ONE Day will contribute nearly one million service hours around the world in just one day.

Kiwanis ONE Day (“One Way, One Day, One K”) was designated by Kiwanis International in order to unite all youth and adult members from different parts of the Kiwanis family together in service.

For more information on the service activities of the West Seattle Kiwanis, please contact Stephanie Halcomb, Club Secretary, at 206-920-3900 or Halcomb.wskiwanis[at]gmail.com.
