Food Drive Success

NeN’s Food Drive Saturday, Feb. 13, noon-4pm

AN ASTOUNDING SUCCESS!

Northeast Neighbors held a food drive on Saturday, February 13, at Harvest Community Church. Nine of our neighbors staffed the site and received the donations from 140 of our neighbors. We easily filled the four barrels we were allotted by Food for Lane County and filled the hallways of the church’s school with the donations.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, millions of Americans worry about nearly empty refrigerators and barren cupboards for their children and themselves. In Lane County, the need for food security has greatly increased and those people without jobs and folks affected by the Holiday Farm Fire depend more on food pantries. Our drive was part of a larger effort with neighborhoods all across the city gathering canned food for Food For Lane County.

Neighborhood volunteers ran the event. We are very grateful to Jackie Booth, Steve Robinson, Nancy Johnson, Rick Alderson, Mary Hogan, Nancy Scott, NeN Board members Kirstin London and Anne Millhollen, Board Chairman Kevin Reed, and Julie Ulm at the Harvest Community Church for making the day possible. And

Thank you to all our neighbors who donated!
