Make Donations Online!
While the 11th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive event has not yet started, you can still make donations to the Oregon Food Bank through their online, secure donation portal all year long, where donations go directly to the Oregon Food Bank.
It's not too late to Sign-up to be a Last Minute Donation Drop Site. While it's too late to get official donation barrels delivered in time for the 11th Annual event, it's not too late to put our your own boxes and print your own signs to collect donations! It only requires about 3-4 sq ft of space for a few small donation collection boxes. Pending when you sign-up, we may also be able to coordinate a delivery of your donations to the food bank, so there's no work on your end other than donating some space. There's many benefits to getting involved:
- Be Proactive and Involved in your Local Community
- Raise Awareness for Hunger in Oregon
- Receive a Listing and Link to your business website from the Great Holiday Food Drive's website
- Get to Know Local Consumers you might not otherwise reach
