For the second year in a row, the Lynnwood Convention Center has selected September to celebrate a Month of Caring. Kicking off this celebration is the International Day of Charity on September 5th. During the month of September we will honor our non-profit partners (clients) by highlighting their great work on our website and through our social media. We will also host a food drive with the Lynnwood Food Bank, accepting donations at the front desk during normal business hours throughout the month. Rounding out the month will be a pop-up blood donation event in partnership with Bloodworks Northwest on September 20th.
