Avamere Bellingham Healthcare Raises Food and Money for Bellingham Food Bank

“This was the first year that we have done this. As a group, we were planning our first family Thanksgiving dinner and decided to ask our guests coming to Avamere Bellingham Healthcare to be with their family members bring a donation for the Food Bank. We are always looking for ways to positively impact our community. We collected 119 pounds of food and $50.00 on our first food drive. The Food Bank here in Bellingham distributes over a quarter million pounds of food in response to more than 11,000 requests for assistance.  The Food Bank is able to purchase more food than we possibly could when they receive cash donations. We plan to continue our small part in this as an annual event. Thank you to family members of our residents who helped with this special event. happy Holidays!” — Gina Ryan, Administrator
