Seventh Annual Derik Nissell Christmas Toy House this Saturday

Seventh Annual Derik Nissell Christmas Toy House this Saturday

SOUTH BEND - The spirit of giving is alive and well once again with the Derik Nissell Annual Christmas Toy House. It's not too late to donate new toys for Saturday's event taking place at the Raymond Eagles (215 N. 3rd St.) beginning at 9:00 a.m.

The toys are for all kids in north Pacific County up to the age of 18. There is no pre-registration needed to attend. You sign up when you arrive, and it's on a first come, first serve basis.

The Toy House celebration is named in honor of Derik Nissell, who passed away at a young age six years ago. This wonderful event is once again directed by Joyce Kidd, Derik's mother, and Susie Weisel-Webber, who work year-round to help make the event a success. Last year 321 children received toys. Parents can choose two toys per child and stocking stuffers are also available.

SW WA Food Hub and WSDA Farm  to School feed more children this year

SW WA Food Hub and WSDA Farm to School feed more children this year

Rural students in Southwest Washington will be eating more locally-grown food for the 2022-2023 school year. That's because Raymond School District, Hoquiam School District, Aberdeen School District, and Pe Ell School District were all awarded Washington Department of Agriculture (WSDA) Farm to School Grants.

The WSDA's Farm to School Program funds school districts in Washington state to buy local food, educate students about agriculture, and more. 'Our goal is to support expanding economic opportunities for farmers while educating students about the connections between food, farming, health, and the environment,' WSDA's Farm to School Program website reads.

The School District staff are eager to feed kids in remote schools, healthy, local food. School Districts off the I-5 corridor are plagued with supply chain issues, and these funds help strengthen their food offerings.

"The Aberdeen School District is thrilled that the WSDA has once again provided the opportunity to serve our students food from local farms again this year," Jaime Matisons Food Service Director at Aberdeen School District Food Service Department said. "The Southwest Washington Food Hub helps us source locally grown meat, dairy, eggs,veggies, and fruit from Washington state farms."
