More ways to give this holiday season

In addition to the holiday food drives I recently mentioned, there are a few additional opportunities in our neighborhood to help out those in need this holiday season.

Donate your socks to a good cause!
Drop-boxes are available in the CHH Lobby or 7th or 11th floors.

Donate clothing to those in need:

Sunshine Division Clothing DriveThe Sunshine Division touches more than 10,000 local families in crisis annually by providing food and clothing through their front doors and an additional 4,000 families will be given a Thanksgiving or Holiday food box in the coming month.

Please help the Sunshine Division follow through on the promise they've made to thousands of others who will receive clothing and food this December and year-round in 2012. Please bring new or gently-used items of clothing (including shoes) to the South Waterfront Umpqua Bank branch during the week of December 5– 9 to help restock the clothing room.  Note that all clothes/shoes are given to families free of charge.
Monday - Friday, December 5 - 9, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Umpqua Bank, 3606 SW Bond Avenue

Don't forget, the Oregon Food Bank food drive is still going on through Dec. 16:
Food Collection:  November 1 - December 16Drop off at Community Relations Townhome

Food will also be collected at the South Waterfront Holiday Food Drive Party on December 7.  The party will include complimentary wine from Storyteller Wine Company as well as artisan cheeses, cured meats, and fruit from our local Zupan's Market.  Feel free to show off your skills by bringing your favorite appetizer to share with your neighbors and please bring at least 2 cans of food as admission to the party.
