Day of Service – Duwamish Cleanup

Our second day of service for 2018 will take place on Sunday, October 21st from 10 to 2 as we once again clean up our section of the Duwamish shoreline along with EarthCorps.  Volunteers will plant native shrubs and flowers.  Kids are always encouraged to attend.  Please RSVP to tikkunolam@khnseattle.org so we can let EarthCorps know how many tools and gloves to bring.  Please see the attached flyer for more details or e-mail questions to Lou Manuta at tikkunolam@khnseattle.org.

White Center Meal

Our next opportunity to serve a meal to the homeless with Westside Interfaith Network will be Saturday, October 28th.  As always, we begin serving at noon in the parking lot behind Bartell Drugs in White Center.  We’re looking for volunteers to prepare (or purchase) and serve a hot meal alongside your KHN friends.  Hygiene products and clothes donations are always welcome.  Kids are always encouraged to attend.  Please RSVP to tikkunolam@khnseattle.org
