Area restaurants to help SnowCap
Clip coupon with this story to help fight hunger -
Buying dinner at an area restaurant on Tuesday, Aug. 23, can make the difference between others going hungry or getting a meal.
Several Gresham-area restaurants are participating in SnowCap Community Charities annual Dine-Out, by donating a portion of their proceeds that day to the agency, which provides food, clothing and other services to thousands of low-income folks in East Multnomah County.
Judy Alley, SnowCaps executive director, says increasing living costs make it difficult for some folks to buy food.
This is for all our hard working neighbors who are having trouble paying their rising rent on their stagnant pay, Alley said.
