Area residents and groups give generously to food bank

Posted: Monday, February 28, 2005

Linda Swarner, executive director of the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank, received the following donations from area groups and businesses on behalf of the food bank.

The Heritage Resident Council recently donated a portion of their fund-raiser events to the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank. Its members are thankful to the community for supporting their events, such as garage sales.

President Jerry Farrington of the Cook Inlet Chapter of Alaska State Employee's Association presented Swarner and food bank warehouse supervisor Kevin Sikba a check for $1,200, which will sponsor a meal a month in the food bank's soup kitchen for one year.

In December, Kenai Unocal employees challenged Anchorage Unocal employees to a "Great Turkey Tally." The competition was to see which group could raise the most money for its respective food bank. At a set donation of $10 per turkey, the Kenai employees collected more funds to benefit hunger relief than the Anchorage group. Chris Myers, operations support superintendent, presented Swarner with a check for over $5,000.
