Timken Foundation of Canton, which drives The Timken Company’s philanthropic initiatives, awarded $20,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Whatcom County. The grant will be used toward updating equipment at our Ferndale Clubhouse kitchen to expand our food program and ensure that we can continue to provide healthy snacks and meals year-round at all four of our Club locations.
Ten years ago, the Ferndale kitchen was built to service that site alone and to provide snacks, but rarely full meals. The current centralized model now produces snacks AND meals for all of our sites. With the help of The Timken Company, this kitchen refurbishment will dramatically expand our refrigeration and freezer storage capacity. The commercial grade food processor will allow our staff to be more efficient with preparation of food also!
Thank you Timken Foundation of Canton, for helping us feed 400 kids each day throughout Whatcom County!
