Neighborhoods help needy with food drives; free community picnic today

Posted by Nicole Tsong

As part of a citywide effort to help needy local families, Bellevue neighborhoods have been throwing block parties with a food drive twist, fundraising with jazz concerts at a local church and holding a dinner for tent city residents.

The events are part of Neighbor Link, a city program to improve neighborhood connections and relationships with projects, events and celebrations. About 20 neighborhoods have been involved so far in an effort to help families affected by the recession.

The city is throwing a picnic today for any neighborhood that has participated. It takes place outside City Hall (450 110th Ave. N.E.) from 6-8 p.m. tonight, with local blues band Two Scoops Combo. A bag of food for Hopelink also gets you in.
