In 2017, the Lacey Food Bank was designated by the Lacey City Council, the North Thurston School District Board and the Lacey Chamber of Commerce as the first “Compassionate Community Project.” In 2018, the community started taking the “Compassionate Community” mission to heart. Students, teachers, community members, businesses and other stakeholders have all helped to make the Lacey Food Bank project happen. The ground-breaking event was held June 12, 2018 where the above mentioned partners and Thurston County Food Bank all celebrated the kickoff of this project. During the event, they received a check from the North Thurston Public Schools “Penny Drive.” The drive raised over ,000 for the project. Heritage Bank has also provided support through a commercial line of credit as well as committing ,000 over the next three years.
