Rotary Club of Snoqualmie recently donated $10,000 to fight hunger in the community. The donations, $5,000 each, were presented to Rotary First Harvest and Snoqualmie Valley Food bank.

This is the fifth consecutive year of Rotary’s committed effort to eradicate hunger here in the Valley. This money will go toward purchasing and making available over 40,000 pounds of food to be used in the upcoming year.

“We are proud to support hunger relief for the needy here in the Valley. Each year we raise money for many programs that directly affect the Snoqualmie Valley but this program is one that is near and dear to everyone in the club and the one program we feel the proudest about,” said Rotary President Leesa McKay.
