Coats for kids
The “Coats for Kids” program at North Cascades Bank in Grand Coulee will be extended through Nov. 15, Branch Manager Sjana Bird said last week.
The bank annually collects coats to be distributed in the schools for kids who need them during the winter months.
Those who have warm coats that they have outgrown or are extra can take them to the local bank branch and they will be distributed to needy kids.
The bank and its personnel have been doing the “Coats for Kids” program for several years and the coats have been appreciated.
POWER, the organization that raises fish for release in Banks Lake, would like volunteers to help feed the fish in the fish pens in Electric City. You can volunteer by calling Carl Russell, 633-0648.
Thanks dinner set for Saturday
The Nourishing Hand Equine Rescue group will put on an Member/Sponsor Appreciation Luncheon Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ridge Riders in Delano.
Donations for the lunch would be appreciated. All proceeds and donations will benefit the horse rescue program.
Scammers say they’re from PUD
The jerk at the other end of the line probably isn’t with the Grant County PUD, but scammers are using that ruse to collect “immediate payment” from individuals whose electricity they threaten to shut off if they don’t meet them at a location and render payment.
Real PUD employees don’t meet with customers outside a regular PUD facility, officials say, although they sometimes make courtesy calls as a bill reminder.
If you have doubts about such a call, you can hang up and call the PUD directly at 800-422-3199.
