The Bellingham community showed the true spirit of generosity this holiday season by responding to a request by the Bellingham Food Bank who put a call out for turkeys for this Thanksgiving.
Over 1,500 turkeys were donated to the food bank so that every food bank client that wanted a turkey could get one. Visits to the food bank had up considerably this year and jumped 40% over 2007.
Among those helping out with Turkey donations were the employees and contractors at the BP Cherry Point refinery who contributed over 800 turkeys.
It is great to know that we live in such a generous community.
