Bankers Care 2015 Million Meal March
This week WBA launched its third annual Bankers Care Spring Food Drive. Dubbed the “Million Meal March” because our goal is to generate 1,000,000 meals for Northwest Harvest and local food banks, this is our highest profile philanthropic program of the year. In addition to collecting donations that are sorely needed by food banks around the Puget Sound region this time of year, it is also an opportunity to showcase the great work that bankers do every day to make our communities better places to live and work. Donate today at www.BankersCare.com!

So WBA will again be offering ten $1,000 college scholarships to Washington students with parents who work in one of our member banks. These scholarships are intended for students who will be incoming freshmen in an accredited college or university, including community and technical colleges, in the 2015-16 academic year.
