North Seattle, including Wedgwood and Lake City, is served by the North Helpline which offers emergency services in food, housing and health care. The holiday season brings increased opportunities to help by contributing nonperishable foods at one of the collection sites in Wedgwood. Look for the basket just inside the front door at Wedgwood Hair Studio, 8206 35th Ave NE in the shopping plaza between the Wedgwood Broiler and Homestreet Bank.
Another way to contribute to the North Helpline is through the Turkey Drive at Fred Meyer in Lake City. If you are out shopping on Friday and Saturday, November 21 and 22, consider picking up some extra food or a turkey to donate. Donation stations are available at Fred Meyer.
