Three-city, four-hour food drive set for October 31

Hopelink is committed to ensuring access to food for our most vulnerable neighbors. During the COVID-19 crisis, many who have never before needed to ask for help are turning to us for support; facing fear, uncertainty and a sudden lack of income.

While Hopelink centers have been closed to the public, we have continued to provide food; transitioning from grocery store-style shopping to pre-packed boxes for all clients. To ensure that all food provided to the public is as safe as possible, we made the decision in early March to temporarily suspend food donations and instead purchase all food directly from vendors.

To help ensure we are able to continue providing food, Hopelink will hold a three-city, four-hour drive-through food drive at three Hopelink centers on Saturday, October 31.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on that day only, community members are invited to drive through and drop off the following items:

  • Tuna
  • Mac and cheese
  • Peanut butter
  • Chili/stew
  • Canned fruit
  • Instant oatmeal/cereal

For health and safety reasons, food donations will be accepted ONLY at these locations between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 31:

Hopelink Kirkland (11011 120th Ave NE, Kirkland)

Hopelink Redmond (8990 154th Avenue Northeast, Redmond)

Hopelink Shoreline (17837 Aurora Avenue N., Shoreline)

Over the past six months, so many Hopelink supporters have reached out to offer support for those we serve every day, and for those who never imagined they would need our help. During this challenging time, the generosity of this community continues to sustain and inspire us. Thank you. For more information on the 4-hour food drive: drives@hopelink.org.
