The WAMS staff and mediators were asked to support Food Drives at the end of 2008 in lieu of the traditional holiday party. One such effort was spearheaded by WAMS Lemon Law Director/Case Administrator Alisa Bacon, who collaborated with her grandmother on Vashon Island to provide holiday food items donated by WAMS to the Vashon-Maury Community Food Bank. Thanks to WAMS, Alisa and her grandmother, over 250 families served by the Vashon Food Bank will have special holiday food baskets this year.
