Giving community shows how much it cares

To the incredible community of Marysville:

Last year the challenge was bigger than ever. The need was higher than we had ever seen. And you rallied together, pulled out all the stops, and incredibly supplied the Marysville Community Food Bank with an abundance of food and toys to support over 2,000 families needing assistance.

An enormous thank you goes out to the local businesses, clubs, service groups, fire stations, churches, city employees, the U.S. Navy, the police department, the U.S. Postal Service, the Tulalip Tribes, and the amazing students. These groups, together with individual contributors and other organizations, provided donations of food, funds, toys, volunteer time and talents to answer the needs of your neighbors.

You fed the grandmother next door who has taken in her child and grandchildren. You provided comfort to the gentleman who lost his home and now struggles for a place to stay. The people of Marysville take care of each other. They give when they can, and I hope they take when they have a need to do so. It’s this circle of support that makes Marysville a community of exceptional strength.
