2nd Harvest Food Bank
Elements Therapeutic Massage is excited to be working with the 2nd Harvest Food Bank. Many people are aware of the food bank and their needs during the holidays; however the need extends year round. The need for partner agencies that rely on Second Harvest to supply their food pantries and meal centers has seen an unprecedented increase due to the economic downturn. These agencies are reporting record-breaking numbers of clients who turn to them for food assistance. Last year, Second Harvest distributed 19.7 million pounds of food throughout Eastern Washington and North Idaho, in Spokane County alone; an estimated 1 in 9 people are at risk of hunger. Based on research on low-income families, hunger studies, benefit programs, unemployment rates and other factors, its projected 17.3 million meals are missed in Spokane annually. Your support makes an impact on those who live in our area. Every dollar donated enables Second Harvest to provide four meals to those in need.
This week, Elements Therapeutic Massage, Wandermere and Spokane South locations will be serving as a drop-off location for food donations. In addition, Wednesday, February 9th, Wandermere and Spokane South studios will be donating 50% of gift card sales* to 2nd Harvest Food Bank. We encourage everyone to take part in this event as we work toward empowering our community.
