We are shouting THANK YOU from our Insurance West roof top! When we began our Holiday Lights Display and Canned Food Drive for the Puyallup Food Bank on Monday, November 28th, we were coming from a place of giving and kindness.
We were so happy to have two fellow businesses in the Puyallup Community collect food and donate food. Volcano Coffee on South Hill, and ServPro of Puyallup in the Valley partnered with us and they deserve a round of applause. Being a part of such a great community makes giving easy and through our giving, we build relationships.
We are happy to announce we will be donating to the Puyallup Food Bank with our 2017 Holiday Lights Display! We will be partnering with businesses in the Puyallup Community and of course, having our blue donation bin outside and accepting donations in our office. (This marketing director couldn't be MORE excited!!!)
Today, I had the utmost pleasure of delivering your donations to the Puyallup Food Bank. I also had another opportunity to see Karen! She's one amazing woman who I'm happy and honored to know!
The pictures above were taken right before we left to go to the food bank! We even collected some money that the Puyallup Food Bank can use by shopping for things they need.
When I arrived at the Food Bank, I found Karen and immediately witnessed so many volunteers helping. It's such a humbling experience going to the Food Bank, and seeing the kindness and eagerness to make sure so many are fed and cared for. There is not ONE ounce of judgement in the air, it's truly a group of men, women, teenagers, and elderly coming together for one loving cause, making sure each person leaves with their food, and a smile on their face because THEY are cared for.
It makes me think that maybe when people come in they're nervous, or feel like they are being looked at negatively because they are using a service such as The Puyallup Food Bank, but I honestly know that they may come in thinking that way, but they leave feeling respected, appreciated, cared for and at times, prayed for. The Puyallup Food Bank holds a special place now in my life, and it's because of Insurance West. I'm so thankful for working here and meeting such wonderful people and working in the Puyallup community.
As we look forward to next year, I encourage you to sign up on our Events page on our website at www.insurance-west.com. We will be sending out information through out the year to inform you of our Food Drive benefiting The Puyallup Food Bank and Holiday Lights Display. Plus some other events we will be hosting in 2017.
I also encourage you to donate to the Puyallup Food Bank individually. They are so kind and excited to see you when you arrive. You can visit their website www.puyallupfoodbank.org for information.
We here at Insurance West are so thankful for your donations and your support. We couldn't have done this without you!
