Last updated 6/5/2020 at 1:13pm
EPHRATA – Grant PUD, in conjunction with Columbia Basin Foundation, has contributed to eight food banks throughout Grant County this spring with Pay-It-Forward grants totaling $11,000.
The services of these food banks are greatly needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many in our communities are struggling to put food on the table for their family and these donations help to provide healthy meals. Food banks receiving assistance include: Coulee City, Grand Coulee, Ephrata, Mattawa, Moses Lake/Warden, Quincy, Royal City and Soap Lake.
The Pay-it-Forward funding is supported by generous donations from Grant PUD’s industrial customers who deferred conservation rebate payments to support community-benefit programs administered by the Columbia Basin Foundation.
Columbia Basin Foundation and its programs are the bridge that helps connect those who wish to give and those that need the assistance. Their mission is to improve the quality of life and shape the future of the Columbia Basin through philanthropy. For more information about them, visit http://www.columbiabasinfoundation.org.
