West Seattle and White Center Foodbank are part of the $1,000,000 Feinstein Challenge
Every year food banks across the nation get the attention of the public around the holidays as the spirit of giving seems like the right thing to do. Food bank stocks grow, checks come in and the hungry really do benefit. But hunger happens year round. It doesn't take days off. 14 million people in America are going hungry.
So, for the 17th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein, philanthropist and humanitarian, will divide ONE MILLION DOLLARS among non profit hunger fighting agencies nationwide through his Feintstein Challenge.
Make your Donation Go Farther!
The need for your support has never been higher as the number of clients served in the West Seattle/White Center area continues to grow. The more donations (monetary and food) we receive during the months of March and April, the bigger chunk of the $1,000,000 we will receive. Donations must be made between March 1st and April 30th and must be specifically designated “Feinstein Challenge” to help us receive a larger percentage of the million dollars. Donations can be food or funds through credit card, check or cash.
Please donate during this year’s Challenge! There is such a need (especially with children and elderly) here in our West Seattle/White Center communities and there are many different ways you can lend a hand.
How you Can Help:
· Organize a food drive at work, church or in your neighborhood.
· Drop off food or funds or mail a check to either the West Seattle Food Bank at 3419 SW Morgan St., Seattle, WA. 98126 or the
White Center Food Bank at 10829 8th Ave. SW, Seattle, WA. 98146 - remember to designate “Feinstein Challenge”.
· Donate online at www.WestSeattleFoodBank.org or www.whitecenterfoodbank.org and write
“Feinstein Challenge” in the designation box.
We hope that with your help, this year can be our most successful Feinstein Challenge ever!
Our neighbors in need depend on us and we depend on YOU to help provide for them!
