Thank you to all who came to the 3rd Fishline Foodbank Annual Auction Fundraiser!


I am so proud to be a part of the Fishline family!
We raised about $10,000 for client services.
Yea, and a very good local organizer of the Poulsbo Lutheran Church Lutefisk Dinner and the Rotary Auction, Margene Smalaaden said that she will be a consultant for the Auction committee next year!
On November 22ed the day of the Auction.
In 2007 we had given out approximately $11,000 in client services which are emergency vouchers for gas, rent, medications etc.
In 2008 (this year) the amount was over $52,000.
Mind boggling.
My store is just down the stairs from the Foodbank and I run up there with Veggies all the time and it is heartbreaking to see people who are so hungry that they are sitting on the bench outside the door of the foodbank eating from a can. But I am at the same time exceedingly grateful to the community around us that donated "that can" so it could be eaten.
As the slogan says we are 'Neighbors helping Neighbors.
