Milestone: Kiwanis Club donates to Sequim Food Bank

The Kiwanis Club of Sequim-Dungeness recently donated $1,350.00 to the Sequim Food Bank on May 15 to help in the midst of the 2019 novel coronavirus pandemic.

COVID-19 has created an overwhelming demand on food from the food bank as many workers are unemployed and businesses are shuttered. The Sequim Food Bank has been distributing pre-packed emergency food bags which include non-perishable food, fresh produce, milk, eggs, bread and a meat since March 20.

The food bank, whose motto is “No one goes hungry in Sequim,” is unable to take donations of food at this time, but cash donations are needed.

Kiwanians earned the donation funds through sales of emergency water filters.

Kiwanis is a worldwide service organization devoted to the needs of children. Since 2015, when the local club was re-established, members have helped with the Back to School Fair, Literacy Council, Sequim Community Aid, Fracture Care International, Camp Beausite and emergency preparedness.

Kiwanis meetings are held via Zoom at noon on the first and third Tuesdays. For more information regarding Kiwanis, or to attend a meeting, contact club president Wayne Boden at 907-227-2296.
