Holiday meals made possible by grant
Sutherlin Oakland Emergency Food Pantry would like to thank the Ford Foundation for the generous grant of $5,000 from its Holiday Giving Program. The pantry will be able to supply holiday boxes with turkey, potatoes, vegetables, bread, milk and the makings for a dessert. This will help provide approximately 1,250 people in the Sutherlin, Oakland, Wilbur and Umpqua areas with a holiday meal.
Twenty-five of our volunteers will spend six hours the day of distribution to box and deliver the food. We have been receiving a gift from Ford Foundation for several years and we appreciate this assistance so we can help the needy in our community.
