We have an amazing group of students with a passion for caring for others in our community and beyond. Because they care so much, the Leadership Club at Saltar’s Point Elementary is excited to announce the launch of our “We Scare Hunger” food drive. They set a goal to raise $1,000.00 to purchase groceries for those in need throughout Pierce County. Will you join us in the fight against hunger? Together we can make a difference in the lives of our community!

The High Holidays are a time to consider supporting our annual food drive. In the past, TBE has asked that you consider making a monetary contribution to Nourish Pierce County. Nourish Pierce County operates 21 active food bank distribution sites throughout Pierce County. We know the need for food is critical. In Pierce County, about 1.3 million visits are made to food pantries and meal sites every year. More than half of these visits to emergency food programs are on behalf of children and seniors. Families are struggling with increasing food costs as well as other basic needs like increased rent and gas prices. Food banks are also having to pay higher costs for purchasing food, transportation costs, and staff. Our contributions will help Nourish Pierce County reach even more families. A contribution of any amount is appreciated. L’Shana Tova.
