Yes, YOU! Our community who participated in Island Market’s “Feed Orcas” fundraising drive in November and December for the Orcas Island Food Bank. The drive broke all records for Island Market as a fundraiser with a grand total of $9576.34 contributed at the cash registers as you bought your groceries! And that doesn’t include the $90.26 left by “Santa” in coins quite surreptitiously. Island Market has been an invaluable partner with the food bank for many, many years. “I am extremely proud to be part of an Island Market team that put forth this successful donation drive supporting our community food bank,” said Grocery Manager Daniel Raymer,.
