Next Pick-Up: Saturday June 11th
Despite the unpredictable weather, summer is approaching and our June pick-up day is only a few weeks away! Our drivers will be stopping by to collect your filled red bag on Saturday, JUNE 11th, so please mark your calendars.
CURRENT FOOD NEEDS:
Canned meats, jam/jelly, milk (any type–powdered, boxed, soy, 2% etc), any gluten free items, canned fruit, fruit/applesauce cups, meals-in-a-can, baked beans, granola bars, crackers, Ensure type drinks, toothpaste, shampoo & conditioner (regular sized preferred).
(Please note, the food bank currently has an abundance of the following, and does NOT NEED: Canned veggies, chili.)
SPECIAL REQUEST: **These are EXTRA items to add to your bag should you choose.** Items for ASG's Summer Food Bags program -- lower sugar cereals (Cheerios, Rice Crispies, etc.), peanut butter and jam/jelly (plastic jars preferred), canned tuna, canned chicken, meals-in-a-can. As we have for the past two summers, ASG will once again be partnering with Food To Go for our Summer Food Bags program. This program provides weekly supplemental bags of food to local kids who experience food insecurity during the summer break. Each bag will include both fresh fruit and vegetables, canned and boxed items, as well as breakfast and lunch options. June's "special request" items will be used to fill bags throughout the summer.
As usual, the following are some important details about our upcoming pick up:
If you will be missing Saturday, June 11th's pick-up, please be sure to email us to let us know so we do not needlessly stop by your home. If you've already notified us via email, you do not need to notify us again.
If you prefer to drop your bag off directly to The Salvation Army (TSA) food bank instead of having us pick it up on June 11th, feel free to do so, but please email us to let us know you will not need pick-up at your home. This does not apply to those donors who have "Drop Off Status," as confirmed by A Simple Gesture.
While we prefer to receive red bags filled with food, we still gratefully accept monetary donations via either our ASG Square site or check, payable to A Simple Gesture - Anacortes, mailed to P.O. Box 1413, Anacortes, WA 98221.
