Quadrant donates to Poulsbo’s Fishline food bank

BELLEVUE– Quadrant Homes reserved part of its annual charitable contributions budget to support food banks in the four counties in which the company builds homes in Puget Sound.

“We chose the food banks that operate within the neighborhoods in which we build our homes,” explained Quadrant Homes president Peter Orser. “We believe in communities and want to support those living in Quadrant communities in every possible way. These organizations are the lifeline of the communities and neighbors helping neighbors is what make them great places to live.”

Food bank recipients included the North Kitsap Fishline serving Stendahl Ridge in Poulsbo.

With the help of its homeowners, Quadrant also collected 4,000 pounds of food to donate to Northwest Harvest – the only statewide organization dedicated to fighting hunger. Quadrant began its support of Northwest Harvest last year and plans to continue its sponsorship of a food drive for the foreseeable future.
