Support from our Community is Vital.
For years, During the Holiday season we run a "Matching Fund Campaign". It is the only time that we reach out to our community for monetary support. A local anonymous private donor offers us $40,000 if the funds are matched by our community. We depend on this campaign as donations received are vital to purchase milk and eggs for the individuals and families that we serve.
In addition, we are so grateful for the "Heroes Against Hunger Campaign," held by Haggen stores, Safeway and Albertsons "Nourishing Neighbors Campaign," Industrial Credit Union's Annual Food Drive and Ferndale Grocery Outlet, "Independence From Hunger Campaign."
We also rely on the unbelievable contributions through Blaine Primary, Elementary, Middle, and High School food and penny drives, "Blaine Gives Back" and "Make a Change Campaigns."
We are so grateful and appreciative for the support from our community and partners during these most challenging economic times. Our whole community has wrapped us in their arms and given us the most comforting hug. To all our donors: thank you for what you do to help individuals and families in our community who face hunger and uncertainty. It is with your generosity and caring that we are able to serve. With your support, as long as we are needed, we will be here.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE GOOD OL' BOYS!
Semiahmoo golf group, THE GOOD OL' BOYS held their annual golf tournament. The event was spearheaded, organized and super successful due to the leadership, energy and compassion of GOB member Thomas Yang and the generosity of all of the 'GOOD OL' BOYS,' This year they raised the phenomenal amount of $23,140.00 for the Blaine Food Bank!
This is the 4th year that the GOBS have chosen to support us in our hunger relief efforts, and have raised over $70,000.00 to fight hunger in our community.
YOU BOYS' ARE AMAZING!
HONORING FAMILY WHILE
Miss Katie from Oakland, CA visiting her family, who are Blaine residents. Kate and her family remember her parents' special occasions each year with a generous gift to the Blaine Food Bank in their honor.
What a wonderful way to celebrate your parents and still extend a hand to individuals and families who experience hunger. She even came in for a visit and took time for a picture!
Thank you so much Kate and Family!
