Spokane Veterans Home Donates Food to Homeless Shelter
(view PDF version)
On June 25th, the Spokane Veterans Home was fortunate enough to be the recipients of the Seattle Seahawks 12 Tour Visit. This was a fun filled day with the Sea Gals, Blitz the Mascot, Taimia the Hawk, the Blue Thunder Drumline and two current players visiting the residents at the home.
Part of the 12 Tour was a barbeque consisting of a plethora of food items and drinks generously donated by Safeway. In keeping with the community spirit, the Spokane Veterans Home passed on the good will by donating the perishable items to the House of Charity, a local homeless shelter in Spokane.
In all, approximately 1,200 pounds of perishable food and drinks were donated. This goes a long way in feeding the Spokane homeless population, many of whom are veterans.
Needless to say, the House of Charity staff were very appreciative and immediately used the donated food to feed over a 100 homeless people.
We would like to thank the Seahawks and Safeway for their kindness!
