Tri-Cities Food Bank has come up with a way to help those who lost everything in this summers’ fires, those who are not yet cleared to go home and see what they lost, and the 30,000+ firefighters who are trying to end this nightmare. We are opening our doors to donations of items to go to the areas affected.
Please see the lists below to see what we can pass on.
* jerky * granola bars * protein bars * meal bars * gum * Gatorade packets (with electrolytes) * Mio bottles (with electrolytes) * Chapstick * baby wipes * bandanas * hair ties * Visine (moisturizing eye drops) * white socks * white underwear * white t-shirts * tampons * pads * paper plates * disposable cups * plastic utensils * towels * razors * deodorant * toiletries * gum * non-perishable foods *
* Clothing (clean gently used or new) * shoes * baby clothes * kids clothes (school starts next week and evacuees need school clothes) * school supplies * diapers * blankets * sheets * pet food * batteries * flashlights * disinfecting wipes * can openers *
* garbage bags for transporting items * plastic zipper bags for sorting items *
Please bring your items to either 424 W Deschutes Ave (our Kennewick branch) between 9:30 and 11:30am on Monday through Friday, or our Central Office next door at 420 W Deschutes between 9am and noon Monday through Friday. This section of Deschutes is off Fruitland Avenue near downtown Kennewick. We will collect and pass on for distribution, until further notice (until there is no more need, or transportation runs out).
We have had help in sorting items from the LDS Church Missionaries. Elders, Barber, Bartschi, Drummond and Tobey sorted bags of clothing and other items and filled three watermelon bins with donated items!
