Here is a photo of the food that the local food pantry will pickup on Saturday 11/8/2013 for those who in our area need some assistance at this time. I personally want to thank our wonderful customers for their support of this program. The customers were given the opportunity to purchase a large grocery bag full of Western Family groceries valued at over $20.00 and when the customer paid $10.00 for the bag then it was donated to food share. Each bag weighed out at close to 14 pound and we had a total 147 bags purchased and donated. This equates out to over $2,940.00 in retail value or over 2040 pounds of food for those in need. We also collected 434.00 in cash that has been given to the Oregon food bank.
Again, what a great response from our community.
