HOST A FOOD & FUND DRIVE
Food & Fund drives play a huge role in helping us to feed thousands of people each year! They are easy and fun and can be as simple as a bake sale or as extravagant as a fancy dinner party with friends. They are a great way for the local community to join our mission in alleviating hunger for our friends and neighbors. Businesses or individuals can get involved!
For more information on food & fund drives or to host your own, please contact Diane Longaker at DianeL@yamhillcap.org or call 503-687-1474
