SAR Food Drive - SAVE THE DATE! 
September 5-6 

Spokane Association of REALTORS® members will be out at the Spokane-area Albertsons/Safeway's grocery stores on September 5 th & 6 th for their annual food drive!
REALTORS® will be collecting food and cash donations to help Second Harvest stock shelves of partner food banks serving local neighborhoods.
To volunteer for a short, two-hour shift at one of the Albersons/Safeway's stores as REALTORS® Pack the Pantry, please call one of our Store Captains.  
The call list (pictured above) is online here.
If you can't make your donation in person, make it online right now with Crowdrise - click on the logo below to enter your donation:
You can create your own Team Page on Crowdrise for a little competition and bragging rights with other offices.
See the Crowdrise setup instruction flyer (pictured above), online here

Remember for every $1 donated, Second Harvest provides 6 pounds of food - the equivalent of 5 meals for hungry people.
The gift of food changes lives and gives people an opportunity to succeed and thrive!
Thank you for your donation!
