Benefiting

Marion Polk Food Share
Despite the beginning of the Great Depression, the 8th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive brought in over 4,385 lbs of food! Barrels from around the Portland-Salem Metro area were collected and donations delivered to the metro-wide Oregon Food Bank Network and tabulated! Thanks to everyone who made the year a success despite the recession and the wide-spread effects on various levels of the community and all income levels!

The 2008 Great Holiday Food Drive covered the Portland-Salem Metro areas and saw barrels overflowing with donations at many locations. Thanks go out to all participants who helped us fight empty warehouses throughout Oregon and raise food and awareness for Oregon Food Bank and the Marion Polk Food Share.
