Ferndale firefighters delivered over 2.5 tons of donations to Food Bank

Whatcom 7 Firefighters and Santa spent the last 2 Saturday evenings driving through Ferndale neighborhoods collecting items for the Ferndale Food Bank. The 2 prior Fridays were spent hosting open houses with Santa at Whatcom County Fire District 7 firehouses while also accepting donations.

The result of their efforts was 5,078 pounds of donated food and it was delivered to the Ferndale Food Bank this morning. According to group spokesperson Matt Sweet, the donation was large enough to fill 3 pallets plus 3 large containers and took 5 truck loads to deliver.
