Teachers from the Highline School District alternative programs get ready to shop.

Teachers from the Highline School District alternative programs get ready to shop.

Last week World Vision teamed up with the Westwood Village Target to help out some local teachers and families. Everyone was given a $100 gift card then let loose in the store; families bought school clothes and teachers stocked up on school supplies. Considering that teachers spend on average $500 of their own money on school supplies each year, this was a much appreciated big deal.

3 Saturday notes: Viaduct, Westwood Village, and … Christmas

June 27th, 2009 Tracy Posted in alaskan way viaduct, Westwood Village, White Center news Comments Off

VIADUCT: This is a good day to not leave home, period. The biggest reason: The Alaskan Way Viaduct is closed most of the day for the Rock N Roll Seattle Marathon. 4 am to 4 pm — the hours may wind up varying somewhat, but that’s the original warning, both directions.

WESTWOOD VILLAGE: One way to avoid leaving the area is to enjoy activities like today’s Westwood Village Street Fair, just north of White Center. We’ll be there representing West Seattle Blog and White Center Now with “live” reporting including photos and video. Free food, music, entertainment, giveaways and more are set to happen at the shopping center 11 am-7 pm; find a schedule here.

CHRISTMAS … IN JUNE: We missed this when it happened a few days ago but are glad to happen onto word of it now: The YES Foundation of White Center visited two schools on the last day of classes to send kids home with gifts to help them enjoy summer, and even raffled off 8 bikes. More info here; photos here.

… one of the closest places is Westwood Village, where Santa is holding court this year in an empty space next to Chico’s, a few doors down from Barnes and Noble – we stopped by to say hi less than an hour ago:

Santa’s at Westwood Village Saturdays and Sundays, noon-4 pm till Christmas. Bring a nonperishable food donation.
