Our leadership has recently taken the monumental step of creating a new initiative called Adopt-a-Restaurant. This is a super innovative way to show our neighborhood (families, neighbors, and businesses) we care during this health and economic crisis. We want to boost our local West Seattle restaurants with $500 to $1,000 by purchasing gift cards from them that we can turn around and donate to the West Seattle Food Bank to use as they see fit or auction at their Instruments of Change online auction next week on May 9th. In this creative and unique way we can help those in our community who are most in need by giving local businesses a direct infusion of funds while also multiplying the impact through the mission of the West Seattle Food Bank. It’s an exponential win for everyone, and we’re hoping our West Seattle neighbors will flock to our local businesses to purchase goods, services and food, and join us in paying it forward through food bank as well.
You can participate as well by frequenting these establishments as much as you can and purchase food/services for yourself. You can also purchase gift cards and give them to the restaurant to pass on to the West Seattle Food Bank or you can pass them on to a neighbor in need. Another way to help is to RSVP and participate in the WS Food Bank’s “Instruments of Change” online auction on May 9th. Even after the auction is over you can still participate in the same way, or even donate gift cards to the local non-profit of your choice. Help us multiply the impact! Please feel free to download this graphic above and post it to your personal Facebook page or Instagram feed and tag us when you join the initiative and shop local.
Join us in living out our values: Live Like Jesus, Do This Together, For the Sake of Others, with Generosity. Help us show the radical love and care of Jesus as we live and breath the example set forth for us in Acts 2:42-47.
