SNOHOMISH — Snohomish banks are battling to fight hunger.
The Snohomish Chamber of Commerce has organized the collection of nonperishable food items and monetary donations at the city’s banks through Dec. 27 to benefit the Snohomish Food Bank.
The banks also are partnering with Snohomish resident Candy Barstow who is challanging each community member to donate $1 to fight hunger.
The bank that collects the most will receive a trophy Dec. 30.
Participating banks include Washington Federal, at 620 Second St.; Columbia Bank, at 167 Lincoln St.; Coastal Community Bank, at 928 Ave. D; Opus Bank, at 1101 Ave. D and Peoples Bank in Fred Meyer, at 2801 Bickford Ave.
