Annual Fund Drive Focuses on Feeding Local Families

 

October 7, 2021



WAITSBURG—Hunger is a significant issue in every community across the nation—including right here in Waitsburg—that’s why Banner Bank is hosting its annual drive to raise funds throughout the month of October for the Waitsburg Resource Center.

Because of the ongoing pandemic, the drive is once again focusing on raising funds, rather than collecting food, to support local food banks and food assistance organizations that are helping those in need. In fact, all across Banner's footprint, teams are raising funds to feed local families by asking clients and the communities to join them by making cash contributions at every branch. In Waitsburg, donations can be made at the Waitsburg branch, 215 Main St Waitsburg WA 99361. The branch hours are Monday-Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and Friday 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

“The pandemic continues to put additional stress on many families and the elderly, so this drive is one more way we can continue to support our community,” said Kim Julian, Client Service Manager, Waitsburg Branch. “One hundred percent of what is donated will be passed along to the Waitsburg Resource Center to feed local families. We invite our clients and the community to join with us to give, and together we can help those in need this year.”

Located at 106 Preston Ave, the Waitsburg Resource Center distributes 1300 pounds of food and serves about 130 neighbors each month. They are open Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. To find out more about this worthwhile charity and how to assist them, please call (509) 337 -8898.
