For five years straight, Garfield Elementary has been the beneficiary of generous support from our Fred Meyer's store in Yakima. They recently donated and helped serve food during our open house event. As a result, the 40th Ave. Fred Meyer's receved regional accolades for their support. Here is the write up on that:
Yakima’s Back to School BBQ
Recently, our Yakima, WA store provided an awesome uplift for the Garfield Elementary students in their community. The 486 team has been a big supporter of the school for years, donating school supplies, holding discount back to school nights, and helping with other activities that they have throughout the year. Last year, Yakima was unable to participate due to COVID, but they were thrilled to be able to gear families up for the school year by hosting a back to school BBQ for the kids and their parents. The team supplied hot dogs, buns, chips, and drinks, and enjoyed grilling and serving all the kids. Our associates are honored to partner with Garfield Elementary. They have a tight-knit community and know all the parents and kids well because Fred Meyer is their one-stop place to shop.
Garfield Elementary appreciates all of the community support afforded to the students and families. Thank you, Fred Meyer!
