Arlington Food Bank receives donation

Arlington Food Bank volunteers have been working to raise money for a new building. To help out, Dr. Devin Brossard of Symmetry Chiropractic in the Smokey Point neighborhood made a donation.

In his first month as a chiropractor, Brossard raised more than $400 for the food bank. He waived the first day’s fees for new patients and asked instead that each patient donate $25 to the food bank. People can continue to donate food or money to the food bank at its current location, 18810 59th Drive NE, Suite B, Arlington, WA 98223.
