Time is running out for Holiday Food Drive

food driveFalling leaves and falling temperatures mean the giving season will soon be here. However, for many families in King County, this time of year is difficult. They struggle to make ends meet, especially as the weather turns colder and heating bills rise.

For many years now, King County employees have demonstrated their generosity and giving spirit by donating canned and pre-packaged food to our Holiday Food Drive. Collection bins have been stationed at most King County buildings to accept your donations. Donations will be accepted in the bins through Friday, Nov. 21.

As in the past, your donations will benefit Northwest Harvest. The organization is the main distribution point for delivery of commodities to food banks across the entire state. Through Northwest Harvest, we know that your donations will go to families in need at no cost to local food banks or their customers.

Please consider donating so that all of our friends and neighbors can enjoy the holiday season ahead.
