Community gave generously to Marysville food bank

During the holidays, resources for many households become strained as folks try to provide for their family members. For many, the challenge is not seasonal; yet it is this time of year when we take notice and take action to help those in need of support. And the rally of support in Marysville/Tulalip to serve our neighbors in need was astounding.

An enormous thank you goes out to local businesses, clubs, service groups, the fire and police departments, churches, city employees, the Tulalip Tribes, and the incredible students in the Marysville and Lakewood school districts. These groups, together with countless individual contributors and other organizations, provided donations of food, funds, toys, volunteer time and talents to answer the needs of our local families.

By the numbers, Marysville is no longer a small town. Yet, so many times I heard our volunteers rejoice in the community spirit. It is truly heartwarming to see and experience that spirit. This is a big town with an even bigger heart; in all seasons.
