Holiday Resources for Low-Income/Homeless

Behind the cut is a listing of various holiday dinners, food basket locations, and other holiday resources.

While I am aware that many people checking a LiveJournal community aren't going to need these resources, perhaps you know or work with someone who does. I thought this might be a good thing to post here so that information was available.

This listing is for King County area resources. I received it from a colleague so I don't have any further information than what is provided.
