‘Tis the season of giving! We have some great events going on for the 2021 holidays that we are excited to tell you about. As you might know, Greenwood does an annual winter clothing drive and this year Wallingford and Ballard branches have joined the party. And, our West Seattle branch has something cooking up this year as well. See below for more details.
Verity + Illumination Clothing Drive – Our annual clothing drive is returning to our Greenwood, Wallingford, and Ballard branches. We will be collecting hats, scarves, mittens, gloves and socks from November 22nd through December 3rd. If you are unable to make into one of the participating branches, don’t worry! You can drop off your donation at any of these drop off locations.
Thanksgiving Food Drive – Our very own West Seattle branch is holding a food drive/fundraiser with West Seattle Food Bank to collect Thanksgiving essential foods. The food bank is specifically looking for items including: stuffing mix, gravy (jar or dry), canned vegetables, canned cranberries, instant potatoes and crispy fried onions. No refrigerated or frozen items please. This is also a fundraiser so if you are unable to make it into the branch, you can also donate directly to the food bank online.
The season has just started—stay tuned for what other branches have going in December. Visit our events page for the most up to date information. What better way to end the year but on a happy note. We at Verity believe in building vibrant communities, and this is one out of many ways we can. Thank you for your support.
