Car Show donates $8,000 to food bank

July 21st, 2009 · No Comments

This year’s Greenwood Car Show, the first run by a new non-profit organization called the Greenwood Knights, donated 85 pounds of food and $8,000 to the Greenwood Food Bank.

The Greenwood Knights will present a check to the food bank during Wednesday night’s Greenwood Seafair Parade, at the grandstand in front of Bartell drug store around 6 p.m. (The parade starts at 6 p.m. at 95th and Greenwood.)

The Volunteers of America Greenwood Food Bank has been serving the Greenwood Community for over 20 years. Each month, nearly 3,000 individuals will visit the food bank for emergency food. The demand has grown within recent months; unfortunately it is during summer months that food banks receive the lowest amount of donations.

Volunteers of America Western Washington is one of the region’s most comprehensive human service organizations. With the help of over 500 employees, 450 volunteers and 1,300 donors we are able to respond to 350,000 requests for assistance each year from families in crisis, children at risk, seniors, and adults with disabilities.
