Here's another idea for contributions from Les (& Donna) Alluisi (MINIRVA).  He set up a box at his workplace with the following sign (replace the lines with your info).  Way to go and thanks for sharing, Les!  I've also uploaded a copy of the flyer here for printing: 
 
 
 

NORTHWEST HARVEST FOOD DRIVE

 Puget Sound MINI Motoring Club

UPDATE!

 The Porsche Club (1,650 members )has once again accepted the challenge by the Mini Cooper Club ( 236 members )to see which club can raise the most in donations and goods for Northwest Harvest by December 2nd.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to fill the boot of your MINI with all of the food donations (or cash donations) you can.

 

Help ___________ fill ____ Mini’s boot!!   Donation box is ____________________.  Thanks to all.

What types of food does Northwest Harvest need?
Northwest Harvest can use any nonperishable food or monetary donations. If you prefer to donate food, select shelf-stable food with the lowest saturated fats and refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour). We buy white rice and beans in bulk, so we encourage you to donate other items. Here are some suggestions:

General food items:

Oatmeal
Whole grain pastas
Brown rice
Tomato products
Canned vegetables
Canned fruit, especially with low sugar (but not artificial sweeteners)
Canned fish or meat
Shelf-stable milk
Beef stew, chili and similar meals with low sugar and saturated fats

Infant and baby foods:

Baby formula
Canned milk
Infant cereal
Jars of baby food
Powdered or canned milk
They also accept baby diapers

Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves...men [and women] will still say, 'This was their Finest Hour.'

I wish there was a local MINI Dealership, like our Honda, Subaru, Mazada and VW.

I'm in on lunch. I hope we'll have a good turnout to celebrate afterwards. Hopefully they'll have room for us? If not, maybe a group of us can meet elsewhere?

I noticed there's a pre-gathering for us southenders in Puyallup at Randy's Restaurant. How come such so early? 9am?!! Confused Sleepy

MORE GOOD NEWS ON THE DONATIONS FRONT!
Many of you know HAURY's Lake City Collison. Well fortunately I checked the BMW site (I posted there as well) and Jeff was willing to write a check.
As soon as a saw this post, called and then went down to pick up a VERY GENEROUS DONATION!!!
The car community is very very cool and filled with some really extraordinary people.
THANKS JEFF AND THE ENTIRE HAURY'S CREW!
If a club member needs their service, keep these guys in mind. They do great work on cars and our community.
Cheers!

The only reference I see to a Southend caravan is Brenda's post above, which lists two restaurants and a meeting time of 9:00am.  If there is more information on the Facebook page could someone post it here, as I am not a Facebook member.
