SPOKANE COUNTY CARES ACT FUNDING, SPOKANE ROTARY 21 DONATION – SEPTEMBER 25
SPOKANE COUNTY CARES ACT FUNDING
We are grateful to announce that the Spokane County Board of Commissioners voted in favor of providing just under $4.4 million in additional Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to Second Harvest. Like the previous CARES Act award they approved for Second Harvest in June, this support is restricted to responding to the increased need for food assistance in Spokane County. Most of the funding will be used to purchase food supplies for distribution to Second Harvest’s Spokane County partner agencies. A portion of the CARES Act dollars also will be used to cover increased costs for off-site storage and additional fuel and freight costs. Learn more about how this funding will be used here and here.
SPOKANE ROTARY 21 DONATION
Second Harvest was honored to receive $60,550 from Spokane Rotary 21 to support hunger relief during the pandemic. Spokane Rotary 21 began fundraising for Second Harvest in April when many Inland Northwest residents began struggling to afford food due to the COVID-19 crisis. The donation was a combined effort of the Spokane Rotary 21 chapter, its individual members, the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International and the Youth Services Committee of Rotary 21. Thank you, Rotary 21, for your immense generosity in helping our neighbors in need during this time!
