New home for food bank

   The Maltby food bank has a new permanent home at 21104 86th Ave. SE in Maltby. The food bank, which serves the Maltby/Echo Lake areas of the Monroe School District, had been housed temporarily at the Clearview Community Center for the past year.

   However, the size of the new location, according to director Fran Walster, is too small to accomodate a clothing bank. Walster encouraged families to donate clothing instead to Snohomish Clothing Closet in Snohomish.

   The bank is open the first four Thursdays of the month from 2-5:30 p.m. Contributions may be dropped off on Thursdays from 9-11 a.m. and from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.
