KiDiMu gets set to help at Helpline

Staff and volunteers from the Kids Discovery Museum will be pitching in at Helpline House from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 9, and they’re looking for assistants.

Families can sign up for one-hour shifts to sort donated goods at the food bank. Shifts are in one-hour increments, but, understanding the nature of little kids and wanting this to be a positive experience for the whole family, museum officials said if your child starts to peter out early, feel free to head out before the shift is up.

Please plan to arrive at the beginning of the shift though, as a brief welcome and tour will start off each shift.

Visit www.kidimu.org to learn more and register to volunteer or call 206-855-4650.

Helpline House is located at 282 Knechtel Way NE.

In addition, the nonprofit children’s museum has been collecting non-perishable food donations for the “Hunger Doesn’t Take a Vacation” campaign. Food donations are accepted in the museum’s lobby through Sunday, June 17.

The campaign’s goal is to provide bags of kid-friendly breakfasts, quick lunches and snacks for each child in need — in addition to a household’s weekly shopping throughout the summer break.

Requested items include cereal, power and granola bars, fruit cups, chili, soups and stews, microwavable popcorn, individual packets of dried fruit and crackers.
