Residents are invited to help combat hunger this winter by participating in the efforts among local businesses to fill SnowCap Community Charities’ food pantry.

On Friday, Nov. 9, Gresham Ford, Riverview Community Bank and Drake’s 7 Dees will kick off the third annual Fill-A-Bag Program, with a goal of collecting more than 300,000 pounds of food during the program’s run, which is through Friday, Jan. 4. Residents will find a bag for non-perishable donations in an upcoming issue of The Outlook as well as an envelope for financial contributions.

In addition, Gresham Ford is sponsoring a Drive 4 UR Community test drive event from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at its new location, 1999 E. Powell Blvd. For every licensed driver age 18 and older who takes the wheel to test drive a new Ford vehicle, Gresham Ford and the Ford Motor Co., will donate $20 to the Fill-A-Bag Program. This is the first time they are dedicating the test drive proceeds to SnowCap.

Community members who would like to donate non-perishable food items can take them to Gresham Ford, Riverview Community Bank, 225 E. Burnside Road, or Drake’s 7 Dee’s Nursery and Landscaping, 16519 S.E. Stark St., Portland. For more information, call Gresham Ford at 503-665-0101.
