The Vashon-Maury Clothing Drive Needs You

By Daniel Hooker

With help from our Community, Granny’s Attic, Mary Ashby Milne, and of course the Vashon-Maury Island Food Bank, I have been giving clothing and bedding away for years, and it’s been a pleasure.

We need volunteers!

The Vashon Maury Island Food Bank serves approximately 280 individuals and families a week, and so do we. We give away an average of 1½ to 3 suburban truck-loads of warmth and caring a week. In addition to volunteer help, I’m seeking someone to take over running the Clothing Drive. I’m leaving the Island soon, and I would love to see someone commit to Community Caring as I have done, and keep the Clothing Drive going.

There’s no pay involved, and, as matter of fact, it could cost you time and money. But the rewards are incredible, when you see a child beaming with joy over new clothes and jackets, and in one young girl’s joyous words at Christmastime, “You mean that I can shop for my mom, and get her a new jacket?” Yes, you can!

So contact me, and take the reins, because this horse is a winner for the Community. For an interview, please call me at (707) 771-1999.
