2nd Harvest Embarks on Capital Campaign to Expand Facility

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash;--2nd Harvest of Tri-Cities announced today their plan to either expand their current distribution center, or find a larger facility in order to keep up with a growing need for food.

Last year the Tri-Cities branch distributed 2.7 million pounds of food throughout the area, and the warehouse they operate out of now is just too small to store all that food. Now, 2nd Harvest is asking for community support so they might be able to begin construction on the project by next year.

"To encourage the community to really think about supporting the capital campaign. It's a step towards making this a better community for everybody. And there isn't a donation that's too small, kids piggy banks, doesn't matter."

Kilgore says they are accepting one time donations or can set you up on a three-year pledge system. The campaign goal is to raise 2 million dollars through tax-deductible donations from individuals, organizations or businesses.
