Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) hosted their annual Walk for Rice on June 29, raising over $200,000 for the ACRS food bank.
Over 900 participants raised money by collecting pledges and running or walking 2.5 miles in Seward Park.
The top four individual donators were Min Song, who raised $3,010; Yoon Joo Han, who raised $2,889; Jocelyn Lui, who raised $2,590; and John Malcomson, who raised $2,074.
CenturyLink helped ACRS meet their $200,000 goal by making over $50,000 in matching donations.
The ACRS Food Bank is one of the most-used food banks in King County, distributing over 126,000 pounds of food per month to nearly 5,000 needy individuals. It is the only food bank in Washington that regularly distributes foods for Asian and Pacific Islander diets, including rice and tofu. (end)
