Continuing in its tradition of assisting North Kitsap Fishline Food Bank and its programs, Bank of America recently awarded a grant for 2013 delivered on its behalf by Shelli Guzman of Merrill Lynch on Bainbridge Island.
In the past, Bank of America has supported the Food for Thought Children’s meal program and other Fishline services. This year, the grant will be used for direct client support as well as funding support for the new Fishline newsletter. The Fishline Focus highlights the activities and services of Fishline, including an inspirational and behind the scenes look at volunteer activities, client stories and details about available services.
Mary Nader, Executive Director, expressed deep thanks on behalf of Fishline. “We are very grateful for the way Bank of America has contributed to community efforts increasing the quality of life for so many. Thanks to BOA, many children have received crucial nutrition through the weekend through Fishline’s Food for Thought program and now many more will learn of the work we’re doing by reading about it in the Fishline Focus.”
Ms. Guzman toured the facility during her visit and was inspired by the ways this community assists its struggling residents. Thanks to partners like Bank of America, Fishline will be able to continue these efforts for many years to come.
