The Federal Way Community Service Club Network is launching a quarterly project to stock the shelves at South King County’s largest social service entity.

Clubs in the network collected baby formula and diapers, then on March 9 at City Hall, volunteers loaded a van bound for the Multi-Service Center.

The network was started three years ago by Dennis Jaraczeski of the Federal Way Noon Rotary. Initially, he sought support to build a big sign that announced the city’s service clubs. The network continues to foster camaraderie and communication among local clubs.

The Federal Way Community Service Club Network meets at 10 a.m. the second Wednesday of every month at City Hall. Participating organizations include AAUW (American Association of University Women); GFWC SOKICO (General Federation of Women’s Clubs South King County); Federal Way Lions (Noon and Sunrise); Federal Way Rotary (Noon and Sunrise); Federal Way Kiwanis (Noon and Sunrise); Federal Way Community Caregiving Network; Reach Out men’s homeless shelter; Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW); Pray Federal Way; Federal Way Community Garden Foundation; and Soroptimist of Federal Way.

The next project will collect kid-friendly foods. To learn more, call (206) 878-3048.
