Our Front Market changes are moving along nicely. Many volunteers have been working tirelessly to create a system called “Fish Bucks.” The new system will help clients shop freely but within limits so that our food will last for all who need it. The changes will be implemented on Monday, July 16.
We will hold client orientation sessions at the food bank as follows:
July 11 11:00 am, 2:00 pm
July 12 11:00 am, 2:00 pm
July 13 11:00 am, 2:00 pm
The orientation sessions are voluntary and are designed to help clients familiarize themselves with the new system, as well as to ask any questions they might have regarding the changes. We hope to see you there!
Also, we have several positions available for volunteers who would like to serve as “check out” people. If you would like to train for one of these position, please contact Gavin immediately. The volunteer times will be 9:30 to 12:30 and 12:30 to 3:30 daily and 3:00 to 7:00 on Wednesdays. Training will take place tomorrow, the 11th at 9:00am and Thursday the 12th at 3:00pm.
We are so excited to announce the launch of our new website. While our mission remains the same, we’ve expanded our website to encompass the changing face of our community in need.
The website features an online client application as well as an online request form for screening appointments. Clients will still be able to come in to the food bank to fill out these applications if they like. We have also added an online volunteer application form to facilitate the process of attracting talented volunteers to participate, as well as suggestions on all the different ways you can share your talents with the NK Fishline community. With our new website, we hope to highlight our relationships with our community partners. The work we do would not be possible without the help of local businesses and organizations. Additionally, we have added a “Donate Now” button, so that you can easily contribute any amount, great or small, from the convenience of your home.
Take a look at our new site, and thanks again for your continued support of NK Fishline.
Super Saturday Sale at Second Season
50% off all items in the store!!
Located on the waterfront in downtown Poulsbo — 18825 Anderson Parkway, directly across from Liberty Bay, Second Season is not your ordinary resale shop. Stocked with better-quality clothing, accessories and housewares, shopping becomes an adventure when you never know what you will find. The shop is open on Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and this Sunday, July 8th from 11am to 3pm. (Special Sunday hours!!)
We receive new items every day, so you’ll want to shop often. All profit from the store goes directly to Fishline, in essence a donation to needy families in our community.
When you donate clothing, housewares and even small furniture to Second Season, the money we receive from their sales goes directly into helping Fishline clients. Hundreds of neighbors are helped every year thanks to work of Second Season and your donations. To make it easier than ever to drop off your donations throughout the summer, our van will be in front of Albertson’s in Poulsbo every Saturday from 11 to 1, through October. Bring your thrift or food donations and receive a 20% coupon off of a single regularly-priced item at Second Season.
