For those of us that grew up in the past generations, wondering where our next meal was coming from was never something we really even had to think about. For me anyway, mom was always there with lunch on the ready at noon on the dot. But for a lot of kids these days, mom is working two jobs and still the cupboards are bare. Sadly for many, this is a daily reality during the summer months especially.

Gresham Ford and Ford Motor Company have understood this problem and, while it's not a fix all, end all, suppling peanut butter through the summer for these kids, can add that extra little bit to help them through. The national Ford Peanut Butter Drive is generally for the month of May, but here at Gresham Ford, we will be collecting peanut butter from May 1st through a big wrap up at the Gresham Arts Festival, July 20th.

The peanut butter donations we collect here at the dealership will benefit our local SnowCap Community Charities who are instrumental in providing food, clothing, advocacy and other services to our East County neighbors that seem to have more month at the end of the money.

On another note, for something fun to do this week end and to help the Gresham Arthur Academy raise some much needed funds to purchase Chormebooks for their classrooms, plan on attending the Gresham Arthur Academy Gala, Saturday, April 27th, 6pm at the SALT Academy, 333 N Main Ave, Gresham. An evening of live music, silent and live auctions, raffles, food, beer & wine. To purchase tickets, please go to; or contact Shannon Chisom at 503-750-3785 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We're all in this together and together we can make a difference!
