The Salvation Army of Everett &Snohomish County wish to thank the administrators, teachers, staff, and especially the students from Eisenhower, Evergreen and Heatherwood middle schools. When these thoughtful citizens discovered the diminishing food supply at our food bank, they immediately went into action.
A total of 8,924 pounds of nonperishable food was collected between the three schools, filling critical shortfalls for our community members. We cannot even begin to put into words how grateful we are for everything they have contributed. In this day and age of our youth being constantly criticized, these young men and women have indeed become a beacon of brightness in many people’s lives!
Special mention goes to Teresa Kemp and Debby Cox, teachers who helped coordinate this effort, and to Austin Gillihan, an Eisenhower student who rallied his fellow students to produce 3,094 pounds of food. Please accept our most sincere thanks on behalf of the thousands of community members we serve!
