Today, we are excited to announce a fundraising campaign in partnership with Tukwila Children’s Foundation (TCF) to get the Pantry a new delivery truck: Get-a-Truck. Go on over to TCF’s website to learn more and donate.
The Pantry’s current truck has over 575,000 registered miles, is in need of major repair, and has spent out the last days of its life serving the communities of Tukwila, SeaTac, Burien and Boulevard Park. The Pantry urgently needs a replacement – and we need matching donations to actually purchase a new truck! We are now serving well over 1000 households a week, and we can’t run the risk of having our truck fall out of commission as this crisis drags on. That’s why some donors and grantmakers have stood up to help us buy a truck – but we need the matching funds to actually buy a new truck!
We are excited to be partnering with TCF on this major project. Our goal is to raise $15,000, and we believe that together, as a community, we can do this and set the Pantry up to serve the residents of Tukwila, SeaTac, Burien, and Boulevard Park for years to come!
