Two local service organizations have teamed up recently to double their offerings to Issaquah when Eastside Fire & Rescue’s Benevolent Fund helped the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank give the Issaquah Community Hall a facelift.
In what is hoped to be the beginning of a long relationship. Benevolent Fund President and EFR Battalion Chief David McDaniel said the nonprofit was delighted to assist with the painting of the center.
“I met Cori last year,” McDaniel said, speaking of Cori Kauk, director of the food bank. “She contacted me about painting the community hall and I said it sounded like a fantastic idea.”
The Benevolent Fund, created by EFR three years ago, wants to continue broadening the support it gives to the area through such projects.
