Get a meal, give a meal during 'drive-thru, drop off' event at Gresham Ford
If you're hungry for a hearty breakfast and want to help people who are struggling to put food on their tables, Gresham Ford is providing the opportunity.
From 8-9 a.m. Friday, Nov. 6, Gresham Ford, 1999 Powell Blvd., invites you to drive through its lot to pick up a free pancake breakfast with coffee. All tips collected during the hour-long event go directly to SnowCap Community Charities. And everyone who tips or drops off donations for SnowCap will be entered into a drawing to receive service at the Gresham Ford Quick Lane. The raffle prize is valued at $250.
The drive-thru event is part of the 2020 Fill-A-Bag volunteer effort, which every fall raises funds and collects donations for SnowCap, a pantry that provides food and hygiene items to people in East Multnomah County living on a low-income.
In conjunction with the event, Gresham Ford is hosting the Gresham Chamber of Commerce "Friday AM" at the same time. The online gathering is from 7:20-8:30 a.m.
