SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Chiefs are once again partnering with Fred Meyer and Second Harvest on Tuesday, February 25 to collect food donations from 5-6:30 p.m. Chiefs players will be on hand at three local Fred Meyer locations to help bag groceries, sign autographs, take photos and collect donations to help families in need around our community.
While meeting the Chiefs, fans are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items to help provide meals and help the local community through Second Harvest. Monetary donations will also be accepted for Second Harvest to assist in the purchase of perishable food items, helping fight against hunger in the Inland Northwest.

A broad base of support from a wide range of partners, including generous food and financial donors and 8,000 volunteers, makes it possible for Second Harvest to operate very efficiently. Every donated dollar is transformed into five meals for hungry people.
