Northwest Harvest Food Donations
A season of giving, this month is called, meaning now is the time to show the people you love how much you love them through the act of exchanging of gifts. It's a fine gesture. But in an ideal world time would also be carved out to give to those who need it most, those you'll likely never meet.
Northwest Harvest provides a list of drop-in food donation sites throughout the city. These sites accept nonperishable food items for the homeless and others in need. Call ahead before dropping off donations.
Northwest Harvest Food Donations, All Day, Various Locations
It's a Wonderful Life at Grand Illusion Cinema
The week of Christmas means late season football, last-minute shopping, and finding which theater is screening It's a Wonderful Life. The holiday classic is pretty much a must-watch for families, spouses, even ambitious first dates. Jimmy Stewart is never more Jimmy Stewart-y (at times melancholy, other times joyous, always fatherly) than in his role as George Bailey, the down-on-his-luck businessman shown what life would look like without him around.
'It's a Wonderful Life' at Grand Illusion Cinema, Wed, Dec 24, 6:30pm, Grand Illusion Cinema, 1403 NE 50th St, $9
Christmas DrugWar Vigil at King County Jail
For the 15th straight year, there will be a peaceful demonstration at the King County Jail in order to protest to the incarceration of citizens charged with nonviolent drug violations.
Seattle Hempfest and the November Coalition want to bring awareness to the negative effects imprisonment has on the lives of otherwise law abiding citizens and their families, as well as protest the billions of tax dollars nationwide that go toward the processing and incarcerating of these non-violent inmates.
Christmas DrugWar Vigil at King County Jail, Thu, Dec 25, 12pm, King County Jail, 500 Fifth Ave, Free
