Can You Spare a Square? | Community Spirit
Can you spare a square? Northwest Harvest is holding their fourth annual toilet paper drive this week in partnership with Alberstons, Project Beauty Share and KXLY. Last year's drive brought in more than 18,000 rolls and this year they hope to double that number.
Northwest Harvest is the only non-profit food distributor that operates state wide and the donations made in the toilet paper driver will be distributed to 19 of their locations. Toilet paper, along with many other hygiene products, cannot be purchased with food stamps. The rolls donated last year only lasted a couple of months.
Northwest Harvest hopes to gather 40,000 rolls this week. Drop off boxes are ready for TP at all Spokane and Liberty Lake Albertsons stores. You can also make a financial donation online or via text. Last year Northwest Harvest was able to purchase an additional 4,000 rolls with the financial contributions that were made.
While you can donate all this week, volunteers will be out at the donation sites on Friday, April 12th. Good Morning Northwest will be live at the Wandermere Alberstons on Friday and Nadine Woodward will be visiting stores and spending time with volunteers through the day as well.
If you can spare a square, visit any Albertsons between today and Friday, April 12th to make a donation, or text KXLY4TP to 80888 to make a $10.00 financial contribution.
