Cost Cutters very helpful

On August 4, 5 and 6, Cost Cutters Foods generously allowed us (Salt of the Earth Ministries Food Bank) to have a fundraiser/food drive at their store on Evergreen Way in Everett. This was a huge success. All the hot dogs, pop and materials were donated to us by the store, as well as all the help and support given by Steve Mullen (Store Manager), Rich Townsend (Assistant Manager), Mary Kellogg (Meat Department) and the other employees. It was a wonderful opportunity to raise funds, collect food and to let the community know who and what we are all about. Without the above mentioned people this would not have been possible. Their help and cooperation was above and beyond anything we could have imagined.

Also, we want to thank all those people who opened their hearts and donated non-perishable food to our organization. By you reaching out to help us, we are able to reach out and help others. This is what we are all about. Helping those that are in need. God bless you all.
