WEEKEND: ‘Celebrity’ baggers at Port Angeles, Sequim stores Saturday

Peninsula Daily News

Local “celebrities” will bag groceries and other items to draw attention to the United Way of Clallam County fundraising campaign this Saturday.

The baggers will be at work from noon to 4 p.m.

In Port Angeles, they will be 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 in progress.

This year’s campaign theme is “We are United.”

The goal is to raise $1 million to be disbursed to 26 partner agencies and used for special initiatives such as the agency’s Great Beginnings childhood-education program and the literacy program.
