Fairwinds – Spokane Food Drive for 2nd Harvest

Food Donation from Fairwinds - Spokane2nd Harvest is the leading hunger-relief network in the region. This season, Fairwinds – Spokane came alongside 2nd Harvest to feed the hungry and homeless in Spokane.

Our employees volunteered with 2nd Harvest on two occasions in November. First, our team sorted through 3,000 pounds of beans and then on another occasion they donated time at Tom’s Turkey Drive.

Our residents went to volunteer at Transitions bake sale and homeless shelter. They put together goodie bags for the homeless shelters with items off their most needed list. We all attended the bake sale and items purchased went to Transitions, a local homeless shelter. Residents delivered the goodie bags after the bake sale.Fairwinds - Spokane Partners with Second Harvest
