Donations to the Food Banks and Habitat For Humanity


It’s not environmental news, but if you didn’t have enough food for your plate this winter, would you even think about protecting the environment? Some of the basic needs of our neighbors are for food and shelter. It’s amazing to me that hundreds of our neighbors queue up for food bank donations every Wednesday. While it would be great to see our government do something about helping these people get their feet more securely on the ground, it’s up to us to get them through the winter.

So take a moment this December and if you feel like you have a bit to give, send a check to :
Port Townsend Food Bank
PO Box 1795
Port Townsend, WA 98368
Your financial donations go far—farther than food donations! Through LifeLine, they can purchase food at a mere 3 cents per pound–that’s only 45 cents for 15 pounds of food!

Or for shelter, try Habitat for Humanity. I did a short film for them last year, and the people they help are amazingly grateful, and in need of better homes.

Thanks, and tell them we sent you. I hope you all have a great holiday season. There will be a lot to do to help the Peninsula next year.
