Sassy team names encouraged!

March Menus

What does one do when the freezers are too full? You make soup. Using frozen leftovers we were able to create three soups for March 2nd’s meal. A hearty turkey vegetable, a vegetarian tomato rice and a spicy beef soup was made. On March 16 we celebrated St. Patrick’s day early with corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots. On Saturday we had sandwiches, chips and fruit. The total cost of these meals was about $50 as the majority of the needed supplies were donated or we used store credits.

Thrivent Investments and Kohl's Partnerships

The Pantry has been accepted as charitable giving choice by Thrivent Financial Investments and Kohl’s Department stores.

Thrivent Financial is an investment program of the Lutheran Church. Thrivent Choice is a charitable grant program that allows eligible members to recommend where Thrivent Financial distributes part of its charitable outreach grant funds each year. Tell your Lutheran friends about this opportunity to help My Sister’s Pantry.

We have also have the opportunity to receive funding from Kohl’s. A current Saturday volunteer is employed by Kohl’s and has said that she will bring teams of 5 employees to work here. Each time a team works at the Pantry, Kohl's donates $500.

Recycle bin helps food banks.

We all know that recycling is good for the environment, but did you know it can help those in need?

For 16 years and counting the "Food Bank Recycling Program" has raised over $250,000 for local Food Banks, and with your help that amount can continue to grow.

Fibres International Inc. places a community recycling bin for FREE. Materials collected are turned into cash, and proceeds from those materials are donated to the Food Bank of your choice. Quite simply this program is worry-free, we maintain the bins and determine the frequency the bin is serviced. All we need from you is one parking space! Working together we can help the local Food Banks in their goal of helping our community.

For more information on how you can help My Sister's Pantry by recycling, contact Kelly Turner, Recycling Rep at Fibres International at (425) 478-2003 or by email kturner @ fibres.net.
