Food+ Drive for Seattle Rep's Public Works Partners

We can’t gather in-person right now for our Public Works workshops, potlucks, or field trips, but we are dedicated to supporting our community in this time of unprecedented health and economic strife. Seattle Rep is hosting a Food+ Drive to benefit our Public Works partner organizations who have currently expressed need for their communities: Compass Housing Alliance, Ballard Senior Center, Jubilee Women’s Center, and Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA).


How It Works:

If you are able to make a donation, small or large, we welcome you to join us during one of the following drop-off times:

  • Saturday, May 9 from 1-3 p.m.
  • Monday, May 11 from 9-11 a.m.
  • Tuesday, May 12 from 5-7 p.m.

We will be collecting items outside of Seattle Rep's Patron Services Office at 155 Mercer St. (at the corner of 2nd and Mercer) in the valet parking zone:
