Seattle Washington came out at #1 with Portland Oregon also ranking in the top 15. I don't think I was surprised by the survey but there was one part of the results that I found very interesting.

It might surprise you to discover that Seattle has the most food banks (per square root of population), 0.023346, which is 18.9 times more than Boston, the city with the fewest at 0.001236.

Seattle likes to take care of its own and along with the other criteria, that's why Seattle is the #1 most generous town in Washington State during the holidays.

It's note-worthy that Wallethub also has another survey of the most-caring cities in the nation with Madison Wisconsin ranking in at #1 with Seattle Washington coming in at #9

All of Washington State ranks high in generosity and giving, just another reason why Washington State is a great place to live.
