The WCCH team is super excited to host a Community Food & Supplies Drive in collaboration with four Bellingham churches - Cornwall, Grace, Hillcrest and Redeemer. On the morning of Saturday, May 23, 2020 each church will serve as a drop off location for donations of shelf stable foods, personal hygiene products and cleaning supplies. Members of the community who want to participate should shop or clear personal pantries of the items indicated on the list below and find the drop off location nearest their home. A team of WCCH and volunteers from each church will be on hand from 10am to 12pm to receive donations on a drive-thru basis. We will be trading donations of food and supplies for handcrafted masks sewn with love from our friends at Whatcom Mask Collective!


Donation recipients include:

Lummi Community Services COMMOD SQUAD  BSD Family Resource Center

SHAG Food Pantries
