Letter - Help local food bank Saturday

Advertisement

I would like to take this opportunity to ask for our community’s help.

Before you go to all the community events on Mother’s Day weekend, take a moment to put a few cans of food in a bag and leave it on your porch by your mailbox.

Saturday the postal carriers will be picking up the food to bring to the Blue Mountain Action Council Food Bank. It will be sorted, boxed and taken to the food pantries in Walla Walla. That would include St. Vincent, Salvation Army, Pantry Shelf and Helpline.

More and more families are struggling to make ends meet and rely on the food pantries in town to stretch their food dollars.

We rely on you to help us to carry on the work of feeding those less fortunate. Just a few cans out of your cupboard will help provide a meal for a family.

Open your heart and your cupboard Saturday. We appreciate you for your gift.
