(Editor's note: This email comes from Gig Harbor resident Ken Roberts in response to the article "?".)
I am just one of thousands of local volunteers who each donate many dozen hours a week/month and these contributions to charity are NOT reflected in any report you might get from the IRS.
Churches in the Gig Harbor area donate to food banks (did you know the Key Peninsula Lutheran Church food bank is 2nd largest in Pierce County?) Service groups, like Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus and many others contribute thousands and thousands of dollars each year to help members of our community in need.
Yes! Citizens of Gig Harbor are very generous but any kind of reports from the IRS only scratch at the tip of giving.
