The ATU Food Drive is underway and barrels are in most work areas. Any donation of non-perishable food is welcome and critically needed. We here at 757 are somewhat shielded as we have jobs and it is all too easy to forget where we came from. All of us at one time or another have come close to wondering how we are going to take care of our families’ needs, so please think about that and give generously. The Oregon Food Bank says a cash donation of $10 is actually equivalent to 30 meals, due to the way the Food Bank buys from suppliers.
Our Brothers and Sisters at Merlo Operations have been absolutely killing it the last few years with hundreds of pounds donated, so let us all jump in this year with a generous donation and make this one our biggest yet. We need to reach 3000 lbs to beat our previous best! The barrels will be out until the 19th of December, the Saturday before Christmas.
A new element this year is a method to donate funds directly to the Oregon Food Bank at this link: Virtual Fund Drive.
