Food Bank thanks you

Because of the generous outpouring of support by the community of Marysville, the Marysville Community Food Bank was able to provide needy families with a holiday feast this Thanksgiving.

The Tulalip Tribes, Rotary clubs, and the Boeing Employee Community Fund were among the many service organizations too numerous to mention who gave so generously. The children of Marysville did their part by donating food to school food drives with Marysville-Pilchuck High School donating 20,000 pounds of food.

If it weren’t for the individuals in Marysville who contribute to these service organizations, churches, and to community food drives, the Food Bank’s shelves would be bare. Instead, the MCFB was able to distribute 30,000 more pounds of food this year than in November 2008 to over 1,400 families. Over 1,200 families received food in December. In spite of the current economy, the people of Marysville continue to give generously to those in need. We had an incredible outpouring of volunteer help from Sunrise Rotary, Quadrant Homes, the U.S. Navy, and over 100 dedicated volunteers in December.

On behalf of everyone who received holiday food, the Marysville Community Food Bank thanks you.
