Stillaguamish Tribe is Doing Something Big to Help Fight Hunger

Arlington, WA (November 29, 2022) Stillaguamish Tribe is proud to donate $200,000 for Northwest Harvest this holiday season. The Board of Directors will present a check to Northwest Harvest the morning of the Home Team Harvest event on Saturday, December 3.

This Tribal donation is a significant contribution to the community that will help those in need this. The donation will enable Northwest Harvest to provide meals and groceries for community members who face hunger. This will be an essential lifeline for individuals and families who are struggling financially during these difficult times.

This donation also demonstrates the Tribal community’s commitment to helping those less fortunate, making sure everyone has access to nutritious food regardless of their economic circumstances. Furthermore, this gives children a chance to take part in a meaningful event that emphasizes the importance of giving back and taking care of each other. By attending the Home Team Harvest event, they become ambassadors for their culture, sharing the values that have been passed down through generations with the greater community in mind.

“As a Tribe we enjoy being able to give back to our community throughout the year, but we also enjoy surprising families during the holidays. We realize that the community as a whole has had a tumultuous last couple of years and that there are even more families that could use some joy this year. We especially wanted to make an impact on as many children as possible” – Eric White, Chairman, Board of Directors, Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians.
