A Look Back at 2021

Here's a snapshot of A Simple Gesture - Anacortes highlights in 2021!

  • 48,800 lbs of food and personal items collected in 2021, not counting the bags of those who regularly drop off their donations directly. You are an amazingly generous and dedicated bunch!

  • Continued stocking of our Red Bag Food Pantries at the library, downtown fire station, police station, and Senior Center.

  • 98 supplemental food bags prepared each week during Summer Break, and 101 bags during Christmas break for local families whose kids are served by Food To Go.

  • Gift cards provided to Meals on Wheels for homebound seniors in Anacortes.

  • Christmas meal boxes for Cap Sante High School students.

  • Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas hams provided for families at the Anacortes Family Center.

  • Emergency food boxes made available on an ongoing basis.

  • 'Adopt-A-Month' food drives at Dakota Creek, Island Hospital, Island View Elementary, Mount Erie Elementary, Compass Wines and Newcomers Club.

  • 110 Safeway gift cards given to Anacortes Police and Fire departments for distribution to people they encounter who are in need.

  • Ongoing supplemental food provided for Cap Sante High School since September.

Thank you for the impact you are making in Anacortes -- we could not do any of this without you!
