Yelm Food Co-op supports Firefighters and Farmers in Eastern WA

– “Co-op Teams Up to Support Firefighters and Farmers in Eastern Washington”
“Aria and Florence {Yelm Food Co-op staff]have teamed up to make a difference for both people and animals impacted by the largest wildfire in state history. For the next several weeks, Florence will use all money donated through the Co-op to purchase supplies like dog and cat food for animals and protein bars and drinks for firefighters at wholesale prices, at no profit to the store.”

“Aria first got involved through her friend Crystal Carlson, a member of the Stewart family of Stewart’s Meats. ‘She decided she couldn’t just stand by and was going to donate eight tons of hay,’ says Aria. ‘We helped her load up a flatbed and after that I thought, ‘We’re not too far away to make a difference.’’ Crystal has since made several trips over the mountains, and will provide transportation for all items donated through the Co-op.”

“If you would like to donate, visit the Yelm Food Co-op at 308 E. Yelm Ave. If you would like to donate hay or feed for livestock, contact Aria Reed Cissney ariacissney@yahool.com.
