Neighborhood news: diaper donations, ‘We Heart’ campaign winners, pet I.D. business

January 5th, 2012 · Comments

Here are a few tidbits of neighborhood news.

Childish Things, at 10002 Holman Rd. NW, collected 1,500 diapers during its December diaper drive for Westside Baby. The store matched the donations with another 1,500 diapers, and then purchased more using 1 percent of its December sales.

Our neighborhood placed fourth in Umpqua Bank’s “We Heart” campaign. The top three neighborhoods – Queen Anne, Magnolia and Bellevue – will each receive $10,000 for a community project. The Phinney Neighborhood Association was one of the 10 businesses with the most votes, so it will receive $1,000.

Greenwood-based online business Flash Gordon, which creates custom pet identification tags using 3D printing, will be featured on KING 5’s New Day Northwest at 11 a.m. today.
