    Gorilla Auto Center came through for Washington Middle School Students in a big way! This AMAZING business reached out and offered to buy a coat for ANY student in need. This process started over Winter Break with a truck full of 200 coats being handed out to our students! Thank you Gorilla Auto Center!

    The fresh produce boxes contained 8-12 different types of produce from local and neighboring state farms. A special thanks to our local farmers; McIlrath Family Farms, Pacific Fresh Produce, and the Washington State Department of Agriculture. We also appreciate the staff support from Crafted Eatery & Single Hill for helping pack the boxes. Thank you for partnering together to provide nutritious local produce for our community!

    On December 16th McClure Elementary had some special visitors during food distribution. Santa and one of his elves helped hand out food, gifts, and even directed traffic! Our food distribution staff braved the cold to make sure ALL of our food was distributed. Thank you to Footprinters of Yakima for sending Santa and to Mcilrath farms for the produce boxes.
