In today's busy world, we realize not eveyone will be able to join us on June 10 to deliver a donation to the Hometeam Summer Hunger Challenge. 

We hope those of you who would still like to contribute to the cause will consider making a $10 donation right from your phone!

Simply text the word "hometeam" to 85944 and $10 will be donated to Northwest Harvest in the name of the KING 5 Hometeam Summer Hunger Challenge.

The buying power of Northwest Harvest will be able to turn that modest amount into more than 40 meals for school age kids and their family members.
