September 8, 2016 – Once again, Puget Sound Bank will participate in the Bankers Care Food Drive campaign, a program launched by the Washington Bankers Association and Northwest Harvest in 2013 to help raise awareness about the issue of hunger in Washington.
As children prepare to go back to school, it is more important than ever to make sure they get the food they need to grow and learn. Research shows that hungry children don’t learn as well in the classroom. Thanks to Northwest Harvest’s statewide network of food banks and affiliates, donations to this year’s campaign will help those in the local communities
The 2016 Bankers Care Food Drive Campaign will run September 12-30 across Washington state. This year, individuals can get involved by donating to the campaign online or at a local participating bank branch throughout the state. Or, visit the Bankers Care booth at the Washington State Fair on Friday, September 2 from 10 a.m. to noon. Bring a food donation and receive free entry to the fair.
