The One Hanford Feeding Families Fundraiser held April 19-April 30 raised $47,200 to fight hunger in the Columbia Basin.
Hanford prime contractors and their labor union partners supporting the Department of Energy’s Hanford Site hosted their 2nd annual online fundraiser to help Second Harvest respond to continued elevated demand for basic food needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations were used to help Second Harvest source and distribute healthy food to children, families and seniors facing hunger through its partner food banks, meal programs and mobile market distributions.
John Eschenberg, President and CEO of Washington River Protection Solutions, highlighted the success of the campaign. “I want to thank those who generously donated to Second Harvest. Together we raised much needed funds to help our friends and neighbors.”
Organizations involved in the fundraiser included Amentum, Bechtel, Central Plateau Cleanup Company, HPMC Occupational Medical Services, Hanford Mission Integration Solutions, Washington River Protection Solutions, HAMTC, and Central Washington Building Trades.
Donations are still being accepted at 2-harvest.org/onehanford.
