POULSBO — The Forest Rock Hills subdivision in Poulsbo held its 10th annual food drive Nov. 10 to benefit Fishline Food Bank.
A total of 1,143 pounds of food supplies and $150 in cash was collected and delivered to Fishline.
“These donations at this special time of year are very important to Fishline and those families in need” said Mary Nader, executive director of Fishline. “Being able to depend on the fine people of Forest Rock Hills each year to make generous contributions is very reassuring. A much appreciated thank you to all who helped.”
