Back to School Shoe Drive for Kids at Mary’s Place

marys place

July-August 25th, 2017

Mary’s Place serves over 250 kids each day that are experiencing homelessness. These kids are constantly outgrowing their shoes and are in particular need when they go back to school.

  • Shoes can be purchased for kids of all ages. Keep in mind some teenage boys have very large feet.
  • Sturdy, closed-toed, waterproof shoes are the best.
  • Tennis or running shoes are favorites.
  • Clean, gently used shoes can also be donated (shoes worn a few times).

Drop shoes off at the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City at  2611 NE 125th St, Seattle, WA 98125 from 9am-5pm M-F. Call us at  206-368-7000 if you need directions.

Thank you for helping kids in our community!

May 19 is Bike Everywhere Day!

From Kaffeeklatsch

Bike Everywhere Day!

May is commonly known as Bike Everywhere month in Seattle – the time of year where saddles get dusted off, and chains get lubricated for the summer. More importantly though, May 19th is Bike Everywhere Day! As in years past, Kaffeeklatsch Seattle and Lake City Future First are partnering with Cascade Bicycle, and Performance Bicycle to create the Lake City Celebration Station. This year, we are going to one-up the game; we are partnering with Lake City Public Library, Seattle Farmers Markets, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and Lake City Greenways to create a one-of-a-kind event to greet our neighborhood cyclists.
Molly from our very own Lake City Farmers Market will be handing out Farmers Market Coupons to Helmet Carrying Bicyclists. Lake City Farmers Market Opens June 8th. There will also be a raffle….Enter to win a market tote or water bottle, as well as a yet to be named prize from Cascade Bicycle…
If you would like to volunteer at the event, please contact Justus Jessen at
Bring your bikes, because Something is Happening in Lake City.
