Milestone: Sequim First Federal branches unite to support Food Bank

Sequim’s First Federal branches united in recent weeks to donate $10,000 to the Sequim Food Bank, 144 W. Alder St.

Anna Ellison, branch manager for the Sequim Avenue branch, 333. N. Sequim Ave., said she and fellow branch manager Lorie Fazio of Sequim Village Marketplace, 1201 W. Washington St., wanted to donate to the same place, so they combined available donation funds.

Fazio said other First Federal branches across Western Washington are looking to donate to their local food banks, too.

Andra Smith, executive director of the Sequim Food Bank, said during the COVID-19 pandemic they must purchase more food as donations from local grocers aren’t as readily available.

The food bank opens 9 a.m.-noon Fridays and Saturdays, and 1-4 p.m. Mondays. For more information, visit www.sequimfoodbank.com or call 360-683-1205.
