Community Bank And Yogurt Shop Give Back To Local Food Bank

November 1, 2013

In early September of this year, the employees of Liberty Bank decided to create a year round fundraiser to support North Kitsap Fishline. The idea was not your average collection of canned foods, but more of a focus on certain needs of Fishline and collecting something different every month. So far in September, the employees collected 54 jars of peanut butter and jelly and in October they’ve collected over 90 cans of soup and chili.

It is so exciting to see an idea take shape and then know as a group we are making a positive impact in our community

, stated Jennifer Carrier, AVP & Branch Manager of Liberty Bank.

This is something that everyone in the bank has supported and agreed to do all year round.

The banks idea was simple; request a certain item which will be easily remembered when shopping and that can be added to a grocery list multiple times throughout the month, and so far it seems to be working.

After seeing the banks display’s of canned soups, YO!G’s Frozen Yogurt of Poulsbo’s owner Jack George contacted Liberty Bank to team up in support of North Kitsap’s Fishline. So on Monday, November 4th, everyone is encouraged to bring canned fruits & vegetables to YO!G’s Frozen Yogurt of Poulsbo, and they will receive a $1.00 off of their purchase price. “This is a win, win for everyone”, stated Jennifer Carrier.

YO!G’s is located next to Game Stop and Payless Shoes Source and across from Walmart.
