As the result of a drive led by Snapper Shuler Kenner Insurance, 200 local families are receiving turkeys for a holiday dinner.
SSK Insurance, with offices in Lynden and Bellingham, offered to match donations of up to 100 turkeys, valued at $1 each. The drive met that goal, and 200 turkeys are being distributed to families in need by Bellingham Food Bank and Lynden-basedProject Hope.
“Since one of every six families in Whatcom County regularly visits a food bank, we know many people could use some help,” said Bob Hagedorn of SSK Insurance, in a press release. “We’re pleased that so many customers and friends of SSK Insurance joined us in donating turkeys, making this holiday season a little brighter for many.”
SSK Insurance offers personal insurance (homes, autos and boats), commercial lines for businesses and employee benefits, such as life, group medical and long-term-care insurance.
The company has offices at 501 Front St. in Lynden and 2115 Barkley Blvd., Suite 201, in Bellingham.
