In 2013, the Bankers Care Food Drive campaign was launched to help raise awareness about the issue of hunger in Washington. Millions of people in Washington are helped every year by Northwest Harvest and its statewide network of food banks and affiliates.
The 2016 Bankers Care Food Drive Campaign will run September 12-30 across the state.
This year, we are pleased to announce the campaign has expanded to include the Olympic and Kitsap Peninsulas, as well as Spokane.
As children prepare to go back to school, it is more important than ever to make sure they get the food they need to grow and learn. Research shows that hungry children don’t learn as well in the classroom. Thanks to Northwest Harvest’s statewide network of food banks and affiliates, donations to this year’s campaign will help those in your local community.
“In many ways and over many years, Washington’s bankers have demonstrated their commitment to the fight against hunger,” said Shelley Rotondo, CEO of Northwest Harvest. “Many volunteer, hold food drives, donate, or commit in other ways to help those in need. With this food drive, our communities receive an extra boost. Washington bankers really do care, and we are tremendously thankful for that.”
