Staff Writer

Regional food banks and community service agencies, including the GreenHouse Community Center in Deer Park and the Loon Lake Food Pantry and Resource Center, were among those receiving support this holiday season from the Avista Foundation and Avista Corp. totaling $275,670.
“At this time of year, the needs are greatest for food, heat and a way for some families to celebrate the holidays,” said Dennis Vermillion, senior vice president of Avista Corp., and president of Avista Utilities. “It is especially meaningful to us to help support the community resources and organizations that make such a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors.”
The giving amount in 2017 from both the Avista Foundation and Avista Corp was more than $2 million. Additionally employees provided more than 45,000 hours of volunteerism in their hometowns in 2017.
