Holiday Food Drive underway through November 17

The holiday season is fast approaching.  Many families in University Place rely on the generosity of community members to make sure they have something on their tables for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  

Bridgeport Place is the one and only designated drop-off location for donations of non-perishable food items.  A donation bin is located in the lobby near the elevator.  

The Lions Club welcomes donations by check or cash so that they can purchase food items in bulk at the best prices. 

Donations for the Thanksgiving baskets must be received by November 17.  The University Place Lions club calls Bridgeport Place ‘home’ and holds their twice monthly meetings in the Parkside Lounge. 

Bridgeport Place is located at 5250 Bridgeport Way West, in University Place.  Donations can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week from now through November 17.  

To receive a complete list of suggested food items, please call Jaynie Jones at 253.565.1960 or e-mail your request to and a list will be mailed to you or sent to you via e-mail. 

The University Place Lions thank you for your support of their community outreach efforts in University Place and making this possible. If donations of non-perishable food items exceed what is needed for the holiday food baskets all extra items will be donated to the University Place food bank.
