Food, used bicycle drive set for May 13 in Kent

Keller Williams organizes event at YMCA

Food donations and used bicycles will be accepted as part of the Keller Williams Mountains to Sound drive-thru event from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 13 at the Kent YMCA, 10828 SE 248th St.

Each year Keller Williams Realty offices closed for a day of community service. This year’s event is a contactless food drive to benefit the Kent Food Bank and other local food banks through Northwest Harvest.

An estimated 50 employees are expected to participate with donation collections and deliveries. Social distancing guidelines will be followed.

Non-perishable food items with current shelf life will be accepted along with bicycles and bike parts that Bicycle Rescue for Youth will refurbish for use by low-income households with children.

A local-owned coffee cart and food trucks also will be on site.

If you would like to donate directly to Northwest Harvest, Bicycle Rescue Youth or the Kent YMCA, go online to:

• NW Harvest: northwestharvest.org/ways-to-give/donate/

• Bicycle Rescue for Youth: bicyclerescueforyouth.org/
