Jefferson: Hadlock Building Supply, customers give $11,000 to food banks

PORT HADLOCK — Hadlock Building Supply and its customers have donated $11,000 to keep local food banks stocked into the new year.

It takes about $5,000 to keep the Jefferson County Food Bank stocked for a month, director Jim Tretter said Wednesday.

So, thanks to the donation, food bank cupboards in Jefferson County should be full through the holidays.

The donation was the result of a money-matching plan by Hadlock Building Supply owners Joe Lovato and Morris James, who told customers they would match as much as $4,000 in donations for local food banks.

Customers came through, they said, and the owners presented Tretter with a check for $4,000 Wednesday and the nearly $7,000 donated by the company’s patrons, James said.

“Please don’t stop,” Lovato said, urging customers to continue to bring donations to the company at 901 Ness Corner Road.
