||We’ve been challenged! You probably saw Larry Nelson’s call to members in the November Spiel to support the Dec. 4 Food Drive. So did a lot of people in the Puget Sound Mini Club. They’ve issued a challenge to our club to put our money and food and Porsches where our mouths are and just try to outshine the Mini Club’s efforts in past years.
Make plans to join us Saturday, Dec. 4 for the PNWR Food Drive to aid King 5 Home Team and Northwest Harvest. Bring food donations and/or cash and caravan with us to the Redmond food collection site.
For the past nine years King 5 Home Team, in conjunction with Northwest Harvest, has held their annual food drive. This year will mark the 10th anniversary of this event, and their goal is to reach 10 million meals provided to those in need. This means that they need to collect food and cash in the amount of 2.7 million meals.
Larry and Sherrel Nelson will be heading the caravan making our delivery to the Redmond Town Square drop off station.
Saturday December 4, 1:00 p.m.
Marymoor Park – west side near the baseball field
Join them for a late lunch at the Redmond Coho Café after the delivery.
Please send them an email and let them know so that they can give the restaurant a headcount. Email Larry at Diratlarge2@pnwr.org
If you are unable to join us on Saturday the 4th you can drop off any nonperishable food at Park Place Motors, at 13710 Northrup Way in Bellevue. They have generously offered their showroom as a collection site (from now until noon on Dec. 4) for those who would like to donate in advance of the event.
So now it is Porsche Pride at stake. Please make plans to bring out your Porsche (rain OR shine) loaded with food and/or cash for Northwest Harvest. We need to make a good showing and not let our club be embarrassed by a bunch of little British cars!
You can see what the Mini community is saying on their blog at Puget Sound MINI Motoring Club. It looks like they are generating a lot of enthusiasm for this challenge.. Help us make this a huge success! Bring your Porsche out, call your friends.
Northwest Harvest can use any nonperishable food and/or monetary donations. If you prefer to donate food, select shelf-stable food with the lowest saturated fats and refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour). Northwest Harvest can buy white rice and beans in bulk so they ask that you donate other items. Here are some suggestions: oatmeal, whole grain pastas, brown rice, tomato products, canned vegetables and fruits (especially with low sugar) canned fish and meat, shelf-stable milk, beef stew and chili. They also need infant and baby foods - formula, powered and canned milk, infant cereal and jars of baby food. They will also accept baby diapers. Check here or more information about the Food Drive.
