This makes it all worth it...

Dear Brandie,

The West Seattle Food Bank would like to thank you for your donation of 205 pounds of dog food to our organization in August. Your donation will help the West Seattle Food Bank provide nutritious food to over 700 families and their pets every week.

So far this year the Food Bank has responded to a family in need 17,175 times. This is a 21% increase over the same period last year. Despite this dramatic increase in the number of families that turn to us for help, it is inspiring to see individuals and organizations in our community reaching out to provide a helping hand to neighbors experiencing difficult times.

Your donation will ensure that everyone in this community has access to the basic right of healthy food. This in turn will help these individuals and families lead healthier and more fulfilling lives.

Thank you for your generosity and dedication to community and support of the West Seattle Food Bank mission to eliminate hunger in our community.

Sincerely,
Fran Yeatts
Executive Director

Note: The credit goes to everyone who brought pet food donations to the CityDog cover dog model search at West Seattle Thriftway last month -- THANK YOU!!! To learn more about the West Seattle Food Bank go to www.westseattlefoodbank.org.
