A Simple Gesture-Anacortes collaborates with other organizations in Anacortes whose goal it is to feed the hungry. Grants from the Noon Kiwanis, Soroptimist International and Aktion Club have provided invaluable financial support.
ASG-Anacortes utilizes the food bank located at The Salvation Army. The majority of food is donated directly to The Salvation Army food bank and is also used to stock the Red Bag Pantries operated by ASG.
Adopt-A-Month is a program through ASG-Anacortes that partners with local businesses and organizations to organize a food drive once a year at their place of operation. The food drives they host take place on the months that ASG does not have a pick-up in order to fill in the gap. In the first year of Adopt-A-Month in 2018, we partnered with: Shell, Newcomer’s Club, Kiwani’s, City of Anacortes, Dakota Creek, and Island Hospital.
