YAKIMA, Wash.; November 9, 2015- FirstFruits Marketing of Washington was honored at the 17th annual "Make A Difference" banquet on Thursday, October 29, 2015, hosted by the Southeast Yakima Community Center and the Opportunities Industrialization Center of Washington.  The banquet highlights 46 years of serving the Yakima community and honors companies and individuals' commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. 

The recognition is a result of an ongoing partnership between FirstFruits and the Southeast Yakima Community Center.  Recently, FirstFruits donated $5,000 to create a computer lab for the grade school children of an impoverished neighborhood who spend after school hours at the center.  In addition, several FirstFruits employees are active volunteers with the organization teaching self-image through dance classes and participating in various events throughout the year such as the annual holiday meal at Christmas and the national night out event.

"We're extremely honored and humbled to be recognized by the Southeast Yakima Community Center and the Opportunities Industrialization of Washington," said Naomi Lule, CFO of FirstFruits Marketing of Washington and chair of FirstFruits Marketing of Washington Missions Commissions.  "We are fortunate to be able to be a major partner of this crucial work both in human input and in financial contribution."

Operating under the servant leadership business model, FirstFruits is about coming together for a greater purpose and giving back is a priority.  Additional recent philanthropic endeavors include sponsoring Yakima's Northwest Harvest's "Carve Out Hunger" event where it raised over 69,000 meals and donating $5,000 to Convoy of Hope for South Carolina relief.  Annually, a percentage of FirstFruits profits are allocated by its employees to non-profit organizations.
