Diane and Stephen of the Sip and Ship store/cafe in Ballard are organizing a donation drive for Katrina Victims and have offered to ship all appropriate donated items for free through the end of September.
What constitutes an appropriate item was not immediately appearent to me, so I emailed them to find out. Here is the response directly from the source:
We are looking for toiletries, diapers/wipes, baby formula, bottles, baby cereal/food, flashlights, batteries, and first aid kits.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you Diana and Stephen for making it particularily easy for people to donate items.
If you don’t have any of these items, you can always donate money directly to the Red Cross.
