Two Griffin 7th graders, Kailey Clark and Trinity Byrd, lead Griffin students and families in a food drive for our local Thurston County Foodbank hosted at St. Christopher’s. Trinity and Kailey’s leadership resulted in over 15 boxes of food for local families and households in the Steamboat area.
The Thurston Co. Foodbank Site at St. Christopher’s distributes food monthly to over 14 families and households in the Steamboat area. Food Donations come from St. Christopher’s congregants, local food drives from organizations like the Griffin Schools, the Griffin Neighborhood Association, the Carlton Beach Homeowners Association, Steamboat Area 4-H, and others local groups; and also from the main Thurston County Foodbank distribution center and its many generous supporters.
In addition, St. Christopher’s offers a food pantry to supplement Foodbank offerings, especially in times when a monthly food distribution does not meet immediate needs. And as needs of many kinds become known, the St. Christopher’s Community and its friends make an effort to offer support and care.
Thank you to all community leaders like Trinity and Kailey. We are all blessed by your care and concern for our community’s wellbeing.
