Yakima Federal Savings and Loan is pleased to announce a contribution of over 3,600lbs of food to local distribution centers serving Central Washington. The donation was given to Second Harvest and Northwest Harvest, regional organizations which supply food to local food banks, shelters and food programs.
The donation was the result of a January-long food collection drive at ten local Yakima Federal Savings and Loan locations. During January, Yakima Federal customers were encouraged to make donations of non-perishable canned and dry foods at their local branches. Yakima Federal employees also held “jeans days” to collect food in exchange for wearing jeans on selected days.
“Despite the abundance so many of us enjoy here in Central Washington, there are still too many people who lack access to nutritious food. I am very pleased that our loyal customers and employees were able to step up and help out during this food drive.” said Leanne Antonio, President and CEO of Yakima Federal. “I encourage those who are able to continue giving as the need is ongoing”.
