A community group is meeting to put together lunch sacks and care packs to distribute on the streets of Capitol Hill and beyond this weekend. HashtagLunchbag Seattle meets Sunday at Pike/Pine club the Rhino Room:
HashtagLunchBag Seattle – New Year’s Event
Happy 2016 everyone!!! Looking to start your year off by giving back to the community? Then come out and support this great cause by helping end hunger to the homeless community of Seattle! We’ve had an outstanding turn out the past two events and are looking to continue to grow and do great things for the homeless community as we recognize this is a growing issue.
Due to the fact we are in the heart of our rainy season we are focusing on providing ponchos in each lunch bag we make. Any donation that you can make to help us provide these ponchos is greatly appreciated!
Every volunteer is asked to contribute $10 to participate. 100% of these funds go towards making the lunch bags. It is important you prepay as this will allow us to gauge how much food we buy. The more people, the more lunch bags we get to donate, it’s simple. :)
Please go to our EventBrite page to purchase tickets.
We are back at The Rhino Room on Capitol Hill. Please arrive 11AM sharp, and check in with Osiris to make sure we received your $10 donation. Assembly should be finished at the latest by 1pm, depending on how many lunch bags we’re able to prepare. Afterwards, we will break up into small groups and distribute the lunch bags throughout the city. These neighborhoods include Capitol Hill, Belltown, Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, International District, etc.
More about the event is here.
You can also assist local groups and organizations helping the homeless around Capitol Hill and Central Seattle — especially organizations like Community Lunch on Capitol Hill that provide ongoing assistance and services in the neighborhood. Let us know if there are more volunteer or donation opportunities we can add.
