12th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive
We look forward to your support this year for our 2019 Portland-Salem Metro-Wide 12th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive taking place from December 2 through December 31, 2019.
We're currently looking for Sponsors & Donation Drop Sites for our 2019, 12th Annual event.
Signup to be a Donation Drop Site Location. Allow your business to be an official Donation Drop Site for the 12th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive. It only requires about 3-4 sq ft of space for a donation collection barrel. We'll take care of the barrel drop-off and pick-up so there's no work on your end other than donating some space. We'll do all the work for you! 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
- Get to Know Local Consumers you might not otherwise reach
