McCurley Dealerships, Russ Dean RV & Yoke's 14th Annual Octoberfest Food Drive

Posted: Updated:

WEST RICHLAND, WA -  McCurley Dealerships, Russ Dean RV, and Yoke's Fresh Markets teamed up again this year for the 14th annual Octoberfest food drive, and Wednesday afternoon they revealed how much they brought in.

All through the month of October the businesses in the Tri-Cities and Walla Walla collected food or money to help families in need this winter.

This year's food drive brought in $56,630 - which will help provide nearly 60,000 pounds of food.

"It helps these food banks in the winter months when their donations aren't as plentiful as they are in other times of the year.

Plus the families that want to celebrate the holidays it's tough to do.

When the food banks can't supply the needed foods," says craig Cavanaugh, McCurley Dealerships General Manager.

All those donations will now be going to local food banks.

The McCurley & Russ Dean RV dealerships and Yoke's Fresh Markets would like to thank all the customers that once again helped to support this annual food bank food drive.

This annual food drive event wouldn't come together without the support of our local media partners, Coca-Cola Distributors of Pasco, Lauran Wang, owner of Mustang Signs of Tri-Cities.
