Port of Bremerton donates $2,500 to Kitsap County Food Bank Coalition

The Port of Bremerton has decided to donate $2,500 to the Kitsap County Food Bank Coalition to help the members of its community during the coronavirus crisis.

The money will be distributed among the four KCFBC banks within the Port’s district to support the purchase of various food and household items, including toilet paper, diapers, soap and other necessary supplies.

“During this most difficult time, many people are out of work and without resources to purchase food. For that reason, the Port Commissioners and the staff at the Port want to try and help and have decided to donate $2,500 to the Kitsap County Food Bank Coalition,” Commissioner Cary Bozeman said in a Port release.

The Kitsap County Food Bank Coalition has nine member agencies: Helpline House on Bainbridge Island, ShareNet in Kingston, North Kitsap Fishline in Poulsbo, Central Kitsap Food Bank in Silverdale; Bremerton foodline, St. Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army in Bremerton, South Kitsap Helpline in Port Orchard, and North Mason Food Bank in Belfair.

Anyone interested in donating to KCFBC can contact President Jennifer Hardison at South Kitsap Helpline at 360-876-4089 or jennifer @skhelpline.org.
