Fill the Cup 2017: Neighbors Helping Neighbors

You’re invited! Fill the Cup 2017: Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Queen Anne Food Bank eagerly invites you and your company to take part in our 2nd Annual Fill the Cup food and fund drive. September 12 – 21, 2017

Last year we kicked off our 1st annual Fill the Cup event, sponsored by Athletic Awards, with the goal of  collecting 10,000 pounds of food in 10 days. Between 34 Queen Anne and South Lake Union organizations hosting donation bins, and 52 individuals and organizations donating food and dollars, our community raised the equivalent of 25,000 pounds!! This is truly an example of neighbors helping neighbors.

Our goal this year is to raise 30,000 pounds of food in 10 days to benefit the QAFB and we need your help to get there!

If you are able, please drop off donations at Athletic Awards any time during the drive. The last day to drop off is the afternoon of Thursday 9/22. If you need your donations picked up, please contact us at events@qafb.org or 206.216.4102.

You can donate dollars at www.qafoodbank.dojiggy.com

You can select the participant there on the left side. You will see Dave Mercer & Team Athletic Awards

If you have any questions you can contact me at dave@athleticawards.com or 206-624-3995

Help us reach & surpass that goal!!  Thank you for your help!
