This week, get lunch, help kids

You've got to eat lunch, anyway -- so this week, why not get a fresh, local boxed lunch that also benefits one of the Northwest's most important charitable organizations?

The 25th annual Childhaven Boxed Lunch Event is a partnership between Childhaven, the region's only therapeutic child care program, and Gretchen's Shoebox Express. Businesses from Everett to Tacoma can purchase boxed lunches, which Childhaven volunteers and staffers will deliver between 9am and noon on Thursday. All proceeds from the lunches go directly to Childhaven.
