Thanks for supporting food bank | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

On behalf of the Arlington Community Food Bank we would like to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe, Arlington Hardware & Lumber, city of Arlington, Wal-Mart and the greater Arlington community for their very generous donations to the Food Bank capital building fund. Soon you will see the ground breaking for the new building. We have to vacate our current facility by Jan.1, 2013, so time is of the essence.

On behalf of the Arlington Community Food Bank we would like to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe, Arlington Hardware & Lumber, city of Arlington, Wal-Mart and the greater Arlington community for their very generous donations to the Food Bank capital building fund. Soon  you will see the ground breaking for the new building. We have to  vacate our current facility by Jan.1, 2013, so time is of the essence.

Our fundraising efforts will not stop with the new building project. We  still have increasing numbers of needy families to feed each week and we continue to need your donations of monies and food. Qualifying clients are allowed to receive a three day food allotment, two times per month and we can only handout what we have on hand. Sadly, we have had to cut back on the number of food items each family can receive each time they come to the Food Bank.

We are very lucky to live in a community that helps the less fortunate  among us.  It really does take a village and we appreciate all of you.

Thank you,

Sue Keezer, President

Arlington Community Food Bank
