A volunteer from the West Seattle Food Bank read her favorite poem as part of the West Seattle Favorite Poem project and it was a special moment. Maggie Dieringer read A.A. Milne's "The More It Snows" from Winnie the Pooh, asking the audience to chime in "tiddley pom." Maggie mentioned how this poem connected with her as she thought about the people in need in our community and how cold their feet may be in the growing snow.
And, of course, it was the WordsWest annual dessert benefit for West Seattle Food Bank. May we always have a place and people to turn to in our time of need.
