Reminder: Emergency food drive for Washington Kids in Transition Jan. 23

Washington Kids in Transition will be hosting a drive-by emergency food drive from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23 at its distribution center, 19721 Scriber Lake Rd. #B in Lynnwood.

You don’t need to get out of your car — just place donations in your trunk, pull up and volunteers will retrieve them.

“Our emergency food closet has been hit hard since the beginning of the year,” Executive Director Kim Gorney said. “If you are in the area, we could sure use your help!”
