Helpline food bank seeking holiday donations

PORT ORCHARD — More than 2,000 local, low-income families will seek assistance next month from the South Kitsap Helpline’s food bank to receive holiday meal baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Jennifer Hardison, Helpline’s executive director, said the agency is especially seeking the following food items: canned corn or green beans; canned or packaged gravy; canned cranberries and fruit; and boxed stuffing.

Food donations can be dropped off at South Kitsap Helpline at 1012 Mitchell Ave. in Port Orchard, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. Donors can call 360-876-4089 to make other drop-off arrangements outside those hours.
