NORTHSHORE COMMUNITY KITCHEN
Many thanks to the local businesses, organizations, PTAs and community members who have supported the Northshore Community Kitchen since it started in April 2012.
With this amazing help, this joint Northshore Council PTSA/Northshore YMCA program has prepared and distributed over 1570 once-a-week meals to more than 30 families in need, plus (since October) a total of 290 once-a-week snack sacks for the students who go to the Hang Time afterschool program at Kenmore Junior High.
As our program continues into the new year, we look forward not only to maintaining but also expanding our support base, so please contact either of us for information on how your financial support, your pantry item donations, or your volunteer time can make a real difference in the lives of many Northshore families.

The NRA`s solution to the recent tragic school shootings is, incredibly, armed guards at the schools. This is pure genius, why didn`t anyone think of it sooner.
More guns is the obvious solution, it`s so simple. Armed guards at all schools, and of course shopping malls.
Don`t forget theaters, fast food restaurants and coffee shops. Also the local post office and all liquor stores and bars. Every IRS office, Social Security and unemployment office is an obvious target. Doctors’ and especially lawyers’ offices should be watched around the clock for disgruntled clients.
Protect every place of employment where more than three employees congregate at one time.
More guns will save us? Tell that to the four dead police officers from Lakewood!
