Here’s a letter from Richard Gibson of the Mountlake Terrace Concern for Neighbors Food Bank. They are trying to buy a new freezer since the current system is far too small for their needs:
Mountlake Terrace Food Bank is installing a new walk-in freezer/cooler over the Labor Day weekend.
Many of our food sources are providing food banks with more and more frozen food. Also, we are picking up more donations at local stores which need refrigeration. Our current freezer and cooler are usually filled to overflowing before distribution on Tuesdays.
Thanks to careful management and good stewardship of donations by previous boards, and receipt of grants by our current board, we are nearing the total cost of this new equipment (approximately $30,000). However, donations are still needed to help us complete this important installation.
We need your help!
We also need your continued support with local food drives, in our schools, churches, businesses and by families, clubs and groups. During September, please help us re-fill our shelves as we support our needy neighbors. Bring donations to the Food Bank on Mondays from 8 to noon, or call 425-778-7227 to arrange a pick up. Organize a food drive where you work or in your neighborhood.
Please help your local food bank help our neighbors!
