We invite you to participate!
The Chinook Food Bank, housed in the renovated Chinook School building, has a loyal, hard working staff of volunteers, namely: Kathy Hughes, Debbie Patana, Jim Kirsch, Jane Reese, Kim Nichols, Kathy Whiteman, Jim Engel, Tom Satterwhite and Katie Garvin. Frequent visits from Jeannie Weyl, who works through the Pacific County Health Department, helps round out the team. In addition, Trudy Heriot assists however necessary.
The Food Bank serves an average of 65 to 75 individuals. This includes parents with children, senior citizens, and all in between.
- We are proud recipients of a gift from the Corder Foundation. This helped to fill our ever empty shelves.
- In February, the Templin Foundation granted funds to purchase much needed refrigeration.
- Throughout the year we receive from: Peninsula Quilters, Columbia River Bar Pilots, ABATE, Wigglin’ Home Boxer Rescue, Chinook Coffee Co., The Lighthouse Church, and Pacific County Employees.
- Numerous donations both, monetary and food items, are received all year long from caring individuals and families.
Sincere thanks goes out to each and every one of you! We couldn’t be more grateful!
