UPCOMING EVENTS:

Oregon Food Bank – In 2017, the Helping Hands Committee will be organizing quarterly volunteer events with the Oregon Food Bank. Our volunteers help with the repackaging of perishable food at the local food distribution center. The first quarter event was a success as our volunteers helped to repackage 9,576 lbs of perishable food that helped to make 7,980 meals.

SOLVE –Stop Oregon Litter and Vandalism is a non-profit organization that helps to restore Oregon’s natural spaces. The Helping Hands Committee will be coordinating an event for the Summer of 2017 to volunteer with this local organization.
