I am updating a prior post from this summer. It is about Food Banks who need boxes and bags for people to carry out food back to their families. With the ongoing pandemic the need is greater for food; we now need to fill those boxes. If you can donate food or even volunteer; Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
Original Post.…..During this pandemic I have collected cardboard boxes. My mail and food deliveries do not want boxes returned. So much for recycling and saving the environment. My home was looking like a staging room for a charity donation site. Boxes stacked in every room in my condo.
Recently, I learned from a neighbor that another neighbor was collecting egg carton boxes and delivery type boxes for the Edmonds Food Bank. I followed up on that lead. Alas! The rumor was true. My upstairs neighbor verified that Edmonds Food Bank needs boxes to pack groceries when providing food for people in need. They also use plastic bags for pet food and brown paper bags for groceries. Great, I have bags stuffed in my laundry room. I dashed down the stairs to my place and quickly returned with paper and plastic bags. This afternoon I gathered my stash of delivery boxes and dropped them off at my neighbor’s front door. Thank you to the volunteers who donate their time helping the community thrive during this difficult time.
