SPOKANE, Wash — Spokane Chiefs players were on site at local Fred Meyer locations last month collecting cash and food donations for Second Harvest that will benefit local families in need.
Thanks to the generosity of all who donated, 2,701 meals will be provided to individuals in need throughout the Spokane and surrounding communities!
Thank you, Chiefs fans!
The Chiefs will partner with Second Harvest again on Saturday, March 14 for Miller Lite St. Paddy’s Day Jersey & Regular Season Finale when the Chiefs will auction off the limited edition jerseys the team will be wearing with proceeds benefiting Second Harvest. Tickets are available online here or can be purchased over the phone at 509-535-PUCK.
About Second Harvest
Founded in 1971 as a central warehouse for a handful of emergency food pantries in Spokane, Second Harvest is the pioneering organization that leads the fight against hunger in the Inland Northwest. Today, partnerships with 250 neighborhood food banks and meal centers make it possible for Second Harvest to provide food to thousands of hungry people each week. Second Harvest’s food bank network spans 21 counties in Eastern Washington and five counties in North Idaho – just over 51,000 square miles. Second Harvest provides 2 million pounds of free food each month throughout its vast service area. Second Harvest’s food helps fill the nutritional gap for people in poverty, the working poor, elderly and disabled people on very low fixed incomes, and children and families in temporary crisis.
