Kick off the holiday spirit with CAPERS’ Annual Santa Mornings Dec 2-3, 9-10, 16-17 and 23, 9am-Noon with a suggested donation of $15 to help support the West Seattle Food Bank. Just bring your own camera for photos with Santa as he accepts wishes from tots of all sizes. It’s easy, fun and a great way to instill the importance of giving back to the community with kids and family. Now in its eighth year, the event features Santa Tony, who volunteers his time to bring joy to children and benefit this worthy cause. Husky Deli is once again providing ice cream cone coupons as well. Over the years, CAPERS and its partners have raised more than $20,000 for the West Food Bank via this fundraiser. Last year alone, the food bank distributed more than 1.5 million pounds of food and spent $260,000 on food purchases, which is why this event is so near and dear to us. The need is ever increasing. And we truly appreciate all our neighbors’ generosity each year.
The West Seattle Food Bank provides nutritious food, baby food, pet food, diapers, and hygiene supplies to 8,400-plus individuals including 3,200 children and 1,200 seniors on an annual basis. They also deliver food weekly to the homes of the disabled, elderly and others through its Mobile Food Bank. Visit www.westseattlefoodbank.org for more information.
