Annual food drives and donations to charities over the holidays help to benefit needy families of Snohomish County.

Good Deeds

The employees of Canyon Creek Cabinet Company donated 160 pounds of food and a check for $1,585 to the local Sky Valley Food Bank. Every year, Canyon Creek conducts a food drive over the holidays to benefit needy families of Snohomish County, and has been one of the food bank's largest contributors for over 13 years. Canyon Creek also made financial and product donations to several charities over the past year.

Representatives from Swinerton Builders have presented Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center in Redmond with a $14,725 check. An additional donation brought the total amount to over $15,000. The gift was the result of a corporate fundraiser that raised $83,766.98 for non-profit organizations across the country thanks to the efforts of Swinerton employees. The Seattle-based division office raised more than any of the 12 total participating locations, and the Swinerton Foundation matched their contributions.

Kaman Auctions, a wholesale auto auction business owned and operated by two sisters in Edmonds, helped raise $3,600 to benefit the Edmonds Boys & Girls Club. The auction company partnered with local businesses to host a live charity auction on Nov. 14. More than 20 local businesses, retailers and area car dealerships donated items for the auction. Tom Pasma was the auctioneer for the event that featured getaways, services and gift certificates.
