Grant PUD employees are hosting our annual "Fill the Bucket" Community Food Drive to benefit local food banks. As a community-wide event, there are multiple ways that everyone throughout Grant County can participate to help those in need.

Look for Grant PUD line trucks and employees at select grocery stores in the county. We'll be there accepting donations from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at these locations on the following days:

  • Nov. 18Walmart Supercenter, Ephrata
  • Dec. 3 – Walmart Supercenter, Moses Lake

All donations will be given to the food banks and will be distributed throughout the county.

 Suggested donation items include, but are not limited to:

  • Non-perishable food items such as soups and canned vegetables
  • Kid friendly items such as peanut butter and canned fruit
  • Baby formula, baby food and diapers
  • Personal care items, such as deodorant, hair care products, feminine hygiene, shaving needs, laundry detergent
  • Cash donations that allow food banks to use their purchasing power to buy needed items

When days turn cold, many of our neighbors need help with more than food. Please consider a donation to Grant PUD's Share the Warmth program. 100% of the donations to Share the Warmth go towards helping those in need to pay their electric bills during difficult times.
