Since 2001, the Ferndale Other Bank has been providing support to low income Ferndale School students by providing basic hygiene and cleaning products ranging from toilet paper and toothpaste to laundry detergent and shampoo. Over the 2013-14 school year, we reached over 170 families. We want to thank the groups and individuals who have made this possible: Christ Lutheran Church, Ferndale United Church, JCLS women's group, the Ferndale Kiwanis, WECU, the Lummi Business Council, Ferndale School Administrative Assistants, Ferndale Walgreens, the Assistance League, the shoppers at Haggen who contribute to the drives held by the FHS Leadership Group, and the many people who make wonderful donations anonymously.
