Avamere at Wenatchee senior living entrance in Wenatchee, Washington

For Immediate Release: 11/4/19

WENATCHEE, Wash. – Avamere at Wenatchee, an independent and assisted living community in Wenatchee, Washington, is holding a food drive to make a difference in their local area.

Called Restock Roundup sponsored by Communities Who Work Together, food collected will go to the East Wenatchee Food Pantry. Their shelves are empty, according to Deidre Galloway, Community Relations Director at Avamere at Wenatchee, making it an especially crucial need to help the pantry stock up.

Avamere at Wenatchee is collecting donations November 23 from 10-3 at the Grocery Outlet Bargain Market in East Wenatchee. People can donate non-perishable food items and enjoy chili or a chili cheese dog with hot drinks. Those who donate a turkey can enter to win a gift basket.

People can also drop off their donation at Avamere at Wenatchee anytime leading up to the event at 1550 Cherry Street in Wenatchee.

Several other local assisted living communities are joining in for this great cause, including Blossom Creek, Blossom Valley, Fieldstone, Highgate, and RiverWest.

“I have an amazing working relationship with all the assisted living communities, and they share the same passion and drive I have to make sure everyone is well cared for,” Galloway said.

The Avamere at Wenatchee team set a goal to stuff all their buses with donations so they can help as many families in need as possible.

The team’s participation in this great cause is part of one of Avamere’s Strategic Priorities to be involved and make a difference in their community. It also aligns with Avamere’s November theme of Thanks + Giving, where they encourage staff and residents to share what they’re thankful for and get in the spirit of giving by holding a drive or other service.
