“Last year more than 26,000 pounds of food were donated and even though we were, and remain amazed by the generosity of our neighbors, we hope to raise even more this year,” Amber Skidmore, an AmeriCorps* VISTA service learning coordinator at the college said. Lists of the most needed items will be available at each participating store.

 

Skidmore also encourages community members to contact her if they are interested in volunteering at one of the store locations.  She can be reached at askidmore@shoreline.edu.
