Bayside Engravers collecting for Cle Elum fire victims

POULSBO — Bayside Engravers is collecting food and clothing for victims of the Taylor Bridge Fire in Cle Elum.

Clothes and non-perishable food can be dropped off at Bayside Engravers, 19735 10th Ave. NE, Suite N102. Hours: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We will be taking it to the Ellensburg Eagles [lodge],” Bayside owner Craig Hammond emailed.

The fire, which had spread to more than 26,000 acres and destroyed more than 60 structures as of Wednesday, hits close to home for Hammond.

“I went to college at [Central Washington University] in Ellensburg and spent a lot of time camping and rafting in the area that is burned out,” he emailed.
