This weekend, take your turn in the TwinStar Money Machine, grab some funds and help fill the Pantry.
Did you know that there are many children in Clark County who struggle with hunger and food insecurity? Nearly one-half of the children in the Evergreen Public Schools qualify for the Washington State free and reduced lunch program. The vast majority of these students currently come from homes without the means to provide proper nutrition and basic needs.
The Evergreen School District Foundation Pantry Project fills pantries in their high schools with food, hygiene supplies, and clothing. Join TwinStar Credit Union (Mill Plain Branch, 14610 SE Mill Plain Blvd, Vancouver) in their efforts to Fill the Pantry on Saturday, March 2, 2019, from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM.
When you visit the Mill Plain TwinStar Credit Union and donate $25 or more, you will have the chance to enter the TwinStar Money Machine! That’s 30 seconds to grab as much cash as you can; you can choose to keep the cash, or donate it to the Pantry Project. TwinStar will match every donation dollar for dollar at this event.
Your donations, and the matching funds from TwinStar Credit Union, will help assist in the goal of expanding the Pantry Project to middle schools as well.
The Pantries are always in need of donated items such as:
• Food – Rice, Noodles, Boxed Pasta, Canned Meats and Vegetables, Sauces, Soups, Etc.
• Personal Items – Toilet Paper, Deodorant, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Tissues, Soaps, Shampoos, Conditioner, Etc.
When children’s basic needs aren’t met they can’t reach for their higher goals and aspirations. Let’s help kids make the move from struggling to survive… to be able to THRIVE!
