Community Impact

Genesee

This was definitely a worthy cause to support and participate in. Sister Price is an 85 year old lady who lives alone on a fixed income. Her husband, a World War II Veteran and before passing 15 years ago, was very active in supporting community causes. After his passing, Mrs. Price was unable to keep up the maintenance on the house. It had been deteriorating pretty bad over the yeas and was in pretty bad shape. She was entered  and selected by Holmberg Mechanical to receive a home makeover focusing on much need repairs. 

 

Jeff White, President/CEO of Holmberg along with his wife and as many as 35 volunteers showed up Saturday morning and did an outstanding job. The repairs included;

  1. A new deck
  2. 2 new water heaters
  3. lawn cutting and tree pruning
  4. Roof repair
  5. Junk removal
  6. Kitchen repairs and some new appliances

It was amazing watching the team working together on independent projects. Each team brought all the necessary tools and equipment to finish their job without leaving the site. While Ezells participated in a small way, the chicken and fixens made a big impact.

Rising Sons

A Day Without Hate campaign

 

"Our whole school participated. The Rising Sons did a PEACE poster that said "what does peace look like?"

 

It had school, home and community. 

 

Hopefully, you can see you are a FEATURED component of the COMMUNITY aspect.

Giving back and truly growing and supporting the community. 

 

That will be featured in our MAIN hall of the building as soon as you come thru the front doors.  It will be up for at least a week and visible to the whole school.  Thanks again for all of the support you have shown.  We truly appreciate you as a vital part of our community.  Not only providing good food, but inspiring the next generation of young entrepreneurs and local success stories.

 

Also attaching the previous banner poster with their signatures from before.  Let me know if I can do anything else.  Have a great weekend.

 

Thank you for your continued support of our kids.  The work you do (seen and unseen) makes a difference."

Eastlake High School BSU – Soul Food Friday

Eastlake High School Black Student Union’s mission is to better educate Eastlake and the Sammamish Community about Black History, Black Culture, and the Black Experience in the U.S. and to provide a safe space for black students at school. This past year we have grown to a group of 15 students who have put on the MLK Assembly, run an awareness campaign around cultural appropriation, hosted the African American Traveling History museum, and as our final event hosted Soul Food Friday. This final community event was made possible by the donation from Ezell’s chicken. We were able to bring together a large group of diverse students to enjoy Ezell’s chicken, waffles, greens, mac and cheese, grits and tasty chicken. We created a history booklet with the African/African American roots of each dish and a recipe guide as a way to not only share food with our student body but to help educate them on African/ African American cuisine. With the generous donation from Ezell’s chicken this event would not have been possible! So thank you for helping make Eastlake’s BSU’s first Soul Food Friday a success!

 

We are also featured in their 2019 Soul Food Friday History and Recipe Guide!

 

Hazen High School Track and Field

“Ezell's is definitely a favorite among our school community, students, staff and families alike. 

 

Our Track and Field team participated in the WIAA State Track and Field Championship Meet. During this meet our boys team was honored and recognized with the State Academic Award for having the highest GPA in the entire State for 4A schools.

 

As you can imagine our entire school and community are super excited about these huge accomplishments at State in addition to several team awards they have taken home this year including the ALL City Trophy. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate this success than with, of course, some Ezell's Famous Chicken.   Thank you for your kind donation!”
