OAC Olympia volunteers for Second Harvest

OAC Spokane collaborated with a volunteer program that aligns with our mission and focus on helping the community, including education and children’s issues, this holiday season.

“We wanted to get involved in Second Harvest’s mission and goal to stamp out hunger in the region,” commented Rusty Pritchard, OAC Senior Project Manager. “Volunteering for the Bite2Go program, focused on K-12 schools in the Spokane area, is a perfect fit to cultivate love and be an active partner to improve the places where we live, work, learn and play. The need is great in Spokane and if we can lovingly support the future generation of learners now, we’re all in.”

The volunteer efforts help students and families at the school districts where we’ve worked for more than a decade. For a holiday volunteer project, our Spokane team worked alongside families and volunteers from St. Mark’s Lutheran Church to assemble more than 1,760 individual meals for the Bite2Go program. These kits encompass healthy, single-serving, nonperishable food items that cover 7,060 meals and 5,280 snacks to provide weekend food security for needy children.

“Serving more than 4,200 kids in dozens of schools throughout Washington and Idaho, Second Harvest reaches students in every school we have worked on in the greater Spokane area,” said Mitch Romero, OAC Senior Project Manager. “This correlation brings the work we do close to home and has sparked a fire in our Spokane team to expand our involvement.”

The team now assists with delivering food twice a month to the Spokane Public Schools Newtech Skills Center and fills food bags on a quarterly basis. “It’s so much fun,” Mitch said, “the energy of all the volunteers is top drawer stuff!”
