Local Companies Banding Together to Fight Hunger!
Over a Dozen Businesses of Various Industries Working Together to Collect Donations For The Hungery
By: Great Holiday Food Drive
The 10th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive is underway now through Wednesday, December 20th with 16 locations around the Portland-Salem Metro area collecting donations.
The Goal: RAISE OVER 70,000 LBS OF FOOD FOR THE OREGON FOOD BANK NETWORK & MARION-POLK FOOD SHARE!
In an effort to make it easy to donate anywhere within the metro area, people can also donate to any New Green Cab Driver around the Portland-Salem Metro Area when taking their New Green Cab taxi trip!
Online donations can also be made at onlinedonations.food-
The food banks are always short on food during the holiday season regardless of economic situations and hardships. According to the Oregon Food Bank:
36% of respondents visit a pantry 12 or more times a year, up from 31% in 2012
56% of households said regular food support helped with their monthly budget
Despite economic conditions, the need for food assistance is on-going. The need for community support and assistance is imperative for organizations like the Oregon Food Bank Network to continue to make a difference and help those in need.
