Use your bikes to deliver charity walk/run packets in support of the University District Food Bank!

On Sunday November 21st and on Wednesday November 24th the Montlake Community Club will need help delivering registration packets to community members who have signed to participate in their 6th Annual Montlake Community Club 5K Turkey Trot and Kids Run. 100% of proceeds from this walk/run go directly to the University District Food Bank and by delivering registration packets by bike to most of the Central and North Seattle participates the Montlake Community Club will be able to donate an extra $3000 to $5000 dollars to the food bank due to reduced mailing fees.

Drop the packet(s) off on the porch and ring the doorbell or knock. After waiting a minute or two, if no one is home place the packet(s) as close to the door as you can and continue on to your next drop off.

Drop off notes for Apartments:

Look the name / unit number up on the call box and try buzzing the person. If they answer tell them that you are there to drop off their Turkey Trot packet. If you are unable to get a hold of the recipient try to leave the their packet inside of the apartment lobby near mailboxes. If you are unable to get into the apartment building leave the packet propped up against the apartment building doors.

What you'll need:

Please plan on bringing a backpack, or a bike with a basket, or panniers.

Also plan on bringing gloves, hand sanitizer and a pen in case you need to take some notes about the drop-offs or routes.
