NUWC Keyport employees assist local food banks

KEYPORT — Employees of Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division, Keyport donated 3,250 pounds of food to Central Kitsap Food Bank and North Kitsap Fishline on Dec. 16.

“Last winter, Keyporters donated more than a ton of food and this year they increased that remarkable total by more than 60 percent,” said Capt. Stephen Iwanowicz, commander, NUWC Keyport.

“This will go to help a lot of people in need.”

Navy divers from NUWC Keyport’s Dive Locker picked up collection boxes throughout the base the morning of Dec. 16 and delivered the 3,250 pounds of food to food bank vans waiting just outside the gate.

Combined with last summer’s total donation of 1,070 pounds of food, NUWC Keyport employees donated 4,320 pounds of food to the local community in 2011.

Since 2000, NUWC Keyport employees have donated nearly 28,000 pounds of food to local food banks.
