Director Notes

Note from the Director, Dell Deierling

The people of Marysville and Tulalip are truly amazing. Despite having to work through great challenges in their community, they persevered and supported each other and made certain that their neighbors in need of food assistance were cared for during the holidays. Even the MP students gave in a big way, when it was they who needed our support.

In 2014 the demands on the Marysville Community Food Bank were bigger than ever. The need was higher than we had ever seen. And the community rallied together, and incredibly supplied the Food Bank with an abundance of food and toys to support the many families needing assistance.

An enormous thank you goes out to the local businesses, clubs, service groups, fire stations, churches, city employees, the US Navy, the police department, the Tulalip Tribes and the amazing school students from both Marysville and Lakewood school districts. These groups, together with individual contributors and other organizations, provided donations of food, funds, toys, volunteer time and talents to answer the needs of our neighbors.

A special thank you goes out the many volunteers that give their hearts and souls to serving our community through the Food Bank. It’s a family of dedicated folks that move mountains to help others.

Thank you all for defining the Marysville/Tulalip community as one that takes care of each other.

Dell Deierling, Director
