The baggers will be at work from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday in stores throughout Port Angeles and Sequim.
In Port Angeles, the celebrity baggers will be stationed at both Safeway stores, Albertsons, Swain’s General Store and Country Aire.
In Sequim, participating stores are Safeway, QFC, Sunny Farms and Grocery Outlet.
Celebrity baggers will be on duty at Forks Outfitters later in October.
The “celebrities” — local well-known people — will wear United Way of Clallam County aprons or Live United T-shirts to raise awareness of the United Way fundraising campaign, which is underway.
This year’s campaign theme is “We are United.” The goal is to raise $1 million to be dispersed to 26 partner agencies and used for special initiatives such as the agency’s Great Beginnings childhood-education program and the literacy program.
Donors can give at work or through the United Way mail campaign, which includes letters to previous donors and a mailer sent out in early November.
