1st Annual Mitzvah Day January 16, 2012
Oregon Food bank Fun
What a great time we had on November 1st at the Oregon Food Bank. 18 people turned out to help package beans that were a direct purchase of the OFB. We had ages ranging from 10-60+; everyone had a great time and can’t wait to do it again. We packaged 18,700 lbs of beans. This equates to a total of 14,385 meals which in turn means that each person there made approximately 232 meals!!!! Whether it’s bagging oranges, sorting canned goods, scooping oats or beans, it feels good to serve
………because no one should go hungry
Our next trip to the food bank will be particularly exciting because it will be to the new Clark County Food Bank facilities. This will be on January 16th in conjunction with our MLK Mitzvah day.
Please contact Carol Stoler if you are interested in participating in Mitzvah Day.
WE DID IT!
We filled the car with 68 bags of food totaling 419 pounds. We also contributed $361 all for Clark County Food Bank. Tons of thanks to KAST who manned the car and everyone that donated to make our annual High Holiday Food Drive such a success.
Children’s Center Appreciates Your Generosity and Quick Response
You really stepped up with all your donations of toilet paper, detergent and shampoo. “…Thanks to receiving these items, she [one of the therapists] can visibly see the relief on her clients faces.” This is from the lovely thank you note we received. It was also posted on their Facebook page for others to see.Your willingness to come through with such little notice really impressed them (and us on the Social Action Committee). Thank you!

Food Bank November 2009
On Tuesday, November 3rd the Social Action Committee sponsored a group volunteer opportunity at the Oregon Food Bank together with other community members, our team of 18 worked diligently to pack 4,680 pounds of Oats! Many small tasks came together to achieve this. Many thanks go to the scoopers, baggers, twist tiers, boxers, labelers, and pallet movers. In a single visit, our group packed enough food to provide 3,600 meals for people in need. Each member of our team can be proud of their individual contribution. They packed 84 meals each.
