The Free Letters Home project at the Ballard Food Bank will take August off. After all, everyone deserves a chance to enjoy the beautiful PNW Summer at its prime! If you’re interested in volunteering with this amazing social connection project when it resumes in September please contact our volunteer coordinator.
On average 20-25 people are stopping by the Free Letters Home table and writing to friends/family. We welcome donations of greeting cards and stamps. Thank you to all of those who have donated! We find that cards with animals are especially in demand. Donations can be dropped off at Andrea’s house, 7713 11th Ave NW or sent to 2442 NW Market Street PMB 286 Seattle, WA 98107. Additionally, Free Letters Home will be collecting at Sustainable Ballard’s Giving Sunday in Commons Park on Sunday August 13th from 10-1pm. So stop by and donate to sustain community connection through Snail Mail!
