When I was seeking greater community involvement and a way to give back to my hometown, my Mom suggested a program created by the Bainbridge Island Helpline House called “Project Happy Birthday”. This was a perfect idea!
Summertime is a slow time for the Helpline House Food Bank donations. That is true of all food banks. The need is great here on Bainbridge Island, and food or financial donations are always welcome. In 2012 almost $80,000 was spent on food purchases to fill the shelves.
