Food bank receives donation from lumber company

The Columbian

MINNEHAHA — Clark County Food Bank received a $10,000 donation from Western Forest Products Inc., a log and lumber business based in Vancouver, B.C. The company offered the donation to 13 different community-based organizations where it operates. Clark County Food Bank was one of only two organizations in Washington — the other in Arlington — to receive a donation. The rest were given to organizations in British Columbia, Canada. “Based on our regular conversations with community leaders and engagement with employees, we identified a common need for food bank services across the communities where we operate,” said Don Demens, president and chief executive officer of Western Forest Products Inc. “At Western, we take pride in being an active community partner and providing support to help healthy and sustainable communities flourish through our management of the working forest and our manufacturing operations. We are pleased to play a role in helping make these uncertain times a little easier.”
