VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AND MONTHLY GIVING MATCH OPPORTUNITY – JANUARY 9
Great news! Volunteers will be returning to our Pasco Hunger Solution Center this month. Due to various factors brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, last summer Second Harvest suspended volunteer activities inside our Pasco facility. We’re excited to welcome volunteers back the week of January 18. Volunteers are the lifeblood of Second Harvest, and we’re so appreciative of everything they do—and equally appreciative of the patience our Tri-Cities volunteer force has had during the pandemic. If you’re interested in volunteering at either of Second Harvest’s locations, click here. Please note that masks are required inside Second Harvest’s facilities, and we continue to use physical distancing and sanitation protocols to keep volunteers and staff safe and healthy.
MONTHLY GIVING MATCH OPPORTUNITY
When you give monthly as a FEED365 member, you’ll create a reliable source of funding year-round to help provide healthy, fresh meals for families, children and seniors facing hunger in our community. Your monthly gift is easy to set up and manage, and it’ll make a huge difference in the lives of people facing hunger in the Inland Northwest. Give now at 2-harvest.org/feed365 and have your first month’s donation matched up to $5,000 thanks to Numerica Credit Union.

Nearly six months after the federal COVID-19 emergency was lifted, obtaining food continues to be extremely challenging. News stories and conversations with our fellow Feeding America food banks confirm that food sourcing difficulties are nationwide.
That’s why we are so fortunate to be able to access Feeding America’s Choice System to obtain a variety of quality, nutritious food.
Looking for a fun way to celebrate your birthday, company event or holiday? Hosting a fundraiser for Second Harvest is easy and makes an impact. You can raise funds online or host a food drive in person. We’ll give you the tools to get set up, share your event and start collecting. Every dollar donated makes a difference for neighbors experiencing food insecurity.
