Thank you to volunteers of food drive

On Saturday September 16th the Southeast Alaska Food Bank conducted a very successful food drive at Super Bear IGA in conjunction with their monthly “Price Smasher Saturday” event. This food drive yielded 506 pounds of canned goods.

On behalf of the Southeast Alaska Good Bank board of directors and our volunteers, we would like to thank Erin Maloney, Christina Patterson, Stephanie Banda, and Mim Jensen from the Rainforest Recovery Center, as well as Janet Lutich and Tyler Collins for all their help soliciting donations at the store.

These donations will allow us to continue our work of providing help to those families and individuals who otherwise might not be able to access much needed food.

Last year, through the efforts of our one employee and our dedicated volunteers, the Southeast Alaska Food Bank provided over 313,000 pounds of food to local food pantries, non-profit organizations, and members of the community. With the recent expansion of facility we are now able to maintain much larger inventory of food, and we are now even better positioned to serve our community.

The goal of the Southeast Alaska Food Bank is to continue to make a difference in the quality of life for those who need help providing food their families in times of need. These donations will help us continue to provide healthy and nutritious food for those in our community who need our assistance, and your continued support is sincerely appreciated.

Sincerely,

Darren Adams

Manager
