• Community Comes Together to Provide 2,000 Thanksgiving Meals

    Les Schwab was proud to partner with Second Harvest, a Yakima Valley food assistance program, to help bring 2,000 Thanksgiving meals to families who might have gone without this past holiday.

    The 2018 Turkey Drive took nearly 1,000 volunteer hours to unbox turkeys, bag produce, label, and assemble the 2,000 boxes for distribution. Les Schwab was honored to help box some of that food and provided a cash donation for this local, hunger-fighting cause. In total, 300 boxes were delivered to Sunnyside families, 300 to Yakima residents, and 1,400 to those in need in and around Kennewick.

  • Helping Build Bikes for Tikes

    Working with Pasco, Washington’s Local Union 598, its members, and other community leaders, Les Schwab store managers in Tri-Cities, Walla Walla, and Oregon’s Umatilla County were proud to be a part of Bikes for Tikes again this year. We were among the 400 volunteers who helped build and deliver nearly 2,000 bicycles for kids throughout the region.

    “The crews building all those bikes worked so hard,” stated Casey Fewkes, Les Schwab Store Manager in Yakima. “We enjoyed pumping up all those tires and being part of the comradery and giving spirit.”

    It took less than four hours for the army of volunteers to uncrate and assemble the bikes and unpack the helmets, which were then delivered by Marines Toys for Tots.
