The Snoqualmie Casino and 94.1 KMPS-FM raised more than 4,000 pounds of food for the Snoqualmie Tribal Food Bank during their holiday food drive held Nov. 25 – Dec. 1.
The generous donation included personal contributions from casino employees and an additional 200 turkeys and hams from the casino.
The food drive was held in conjunction with 94.1 KMPS-FM’s Ho Ho Ho-down Holiday Concert, which featured country music rising star Eric Church and special guests the Lo Cash Cowboys.
Attendees to the near-capacity concert donated non-perishable food items in exchange for entry to the event.
The Snoqualmie Tribal Food Bank is a full service food bank bringing much needed food to the kitchen tables of many of the greater Snoqualmie Valley’s most needy families.
The food bank provides food to over 4,000 families annually.
“This is by far the largest single food donation we’ve ever received,” said Snoqualmie Tribal Food Bank director, Maryanne Hinzman. “The amount of food collected will help us feed hundreds of families for the next few weeks. That’s incredible, and we thank everyone who donated.”
