Laurelhurst Resident Coordinating 21st Annual Neighborhood Food Drive For Northwest Harvest

Northwest Harvest

Betsy Kirby, a Laurelhurst resident, would like to let the community know about the Northwest Harvest Food Drive she is coordinating starting Saturday, November 1, until November 8th. 

Betsy has been involved with the food drive for twenty one years. She told us that in the last 20 years, the neighborhood has donated 11,720 pounds of food and $106,627.00.

Northwest Harvest's website says:
Northwest Harvest is Washington's own statewide hunger relief agency. Our mission is to provide nutritious food to hungry people statewide in a manner that respects their dignity, while fighting to eliminate hunger.  
Our vision is that ample nutritious food is available to everyone in Washington State.

This year, Betsy is collecting checks on behalf of Northwest Harvest which they will use to purchase food in bulk.

Checks should be made out to:
Northwest Harvest
or c/o Betsy Kirby
3155 W. Laurelhurst Dr. N.E.
Seattle, WA 98105
