The 2017 Governor’s Food Drive is underway! You can help feed hungry Oregonians by:
–> Bidding on fabulous auction items such as gift cards for iTunes or Old Navy, a Thai massage gift certificate, various kitchen gadgets, outdoor equipment, books, beautiful scarves, even furniture. Check often as new items are being added all the time – and bid!
–> Buying snacks from the Info Desk in the library.
–> Contributing to the Penny Drive, also at the Info Desk.
–> Giving non-perishable food items – place in donation boxes throughout the library.
Every year, state institutions like WOU and other state universities participate in what amounts to the largest employer donation to local Oregon food banks all year, to help feed the hungry in our state. Thanks for your support!
