The Bresee team in Olympic has been hard at work, supporting families and delivering over 50 grocery bags to the most vulnerable this past week. As one GRYD staff member witnessed from a grateful parent: "There is a great need out there. There's no money, no jobs. We're going without food." Bresee also partnered with State Assemblymember Miguel Santiago to continue supporting their families in this time of need. Excellent work, Bresee!
