Thanks to students for amazing food drive

This letter is to thank the students at Granite Falls High School and Mountain Way Elementary School for their amazing holiday food drive and the incredible amount of food they collected. Happily, it took many hours and many volunteers to load, unload, and organize the shelves in our food bank, thanks to your donations.

We also want to thank Lake Stevens Albertsons and the Lake Stevens Haggen stores for their continuing donations throughout the year and to the Granite Falls IGA for its more than generous donation.

Our community blesses so many in need and our food bank would not continue without our local support. We are so appreciative of everyone — students, community, local grocers, and volunteers! Thank you all!

Michael Touchette,

Food Bank Coordinator
