This is from the Seahawks:


The Seattle Seahawks, KIRO Radio and Northwest Harvest are encouraging fans to bring nonperishable food or cash donations to the Seahawks game at Qwest Field this Sunday, November 23.


Volunteers from Northwest Harvest will be available at all gates to accept contributions. The donations assist Northwest Harvest, the only statewide hunger relief organization in Washington. Each year, about 18 million pounds of food are distributed to approximately 300 food banks and hot meal programs throughout the state.


In honor of Brenden Foster, the 11-year old Bothell boy whose dying wish is to feed the homeless, the Seahawks have added additional option for fans to contribute. Seahawks personnel, Sea Gals and Blitz will also be available to take food or cash donations on Saturday, November 22 at the team’s Renton headquarters from 11 a.m. -1 p.m. The Virgina Mason Athletic Center is located off the 44th Street/Exit #7 on Highway 405 at 12 Seahawks Way.


Items that are most needed by Northwest Harvest:


General Food Items – canned fruits and vegetables, hot and cold cereals, tuna fish, canned meats, peanut butter, and soup.


Whole Meals – chili, stews and hearty soups, pork & beans, raisins, macaroni & cheese.


Infant & Baby Foods – baby formula, canned milk, powdered milk, jars of baby food, infant cereal (diapers are also needed).

    This is pathetic. We all comment on stories year round. If I lived in Washington I’d go to Costco tomorrow and spend my tail gate money to help out. Come on losers, get with it and donate. And let’s talk it up.

    what is your point jason?

    you are welcome to send any money or food to northwest harvest from alaska, or to any other charity for that matter (doesn’t have to be seahawk related). i’m sure they wouldn’t mind.

  3. I live in NJ. As such, I don’t have much to say on this topic.
