As a new Mom, Stephanie Barnes Kloster is finding it hard get out and join local rallies and marches in support of human rights. Instead of simply watching events unfold on television, Barnes Kloster is taking action at home.
Barnes Kloster is organizing a bake sale event at a home on the north-side of Gilman Park. The home is located at 936 NW 54th Street in Ballard’s West Woodland neighborhood. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Seattle-King County NAACP.
“My husband and I talk a lot about how to balance donating money and time with the realities of being a single-income family with a toddler. I bake with my son everyday, so a bake sale felt like a natural way to use my existing skills to support a cause that is close to my heart. I am passionate about the Black Lives Matter movement, so an event benefiting the NAACP was a great fit for our family,” Kloster shared.
Kloster reached out to the Seattle-King County NAACP and they shared their intent to send a representative out to the bake sale. “I’m excited to meet them and to build stronger relationships with other members of the community,” Kloster shared.
How to join the event:
Neighbors are encouraged to participate in the event either by donating a baked good, drinks, or purchasing one at the event – cash, check, or Paypal are accepted. To volunteer please contact Stephanie Kloster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
