Letter: Donate to Share and Care
This year, the Kiwanis Club of Scappoose, along with the Scappoose Fire Department, will once again sponsor the Share and Care Christmas Program.
Through the combined efforts of caring community members and businesses, Share and Care can brighten the holidays for families who have special needs due to lost jobs, illness, or death. In 2017, over 200 families in the Scappoose area received food and gifts from the Share and Care program.
The Scappoose Fire Department gathers the names of the needy, helps with the collection of goods, and takes care of the toys and clothing. The Kiwanis club contributes financially, organizes and picks up the food donations, along with sorting and distribution of food boxes.
Expenses mount when putting together the food and toys for this program. Any donations that we receive to help defray costs are greatly appreciated. We hope that you will join with us to help make the holidays a more joyous time for families in the area that need a helping hand.
If you would like to be part of this program, please send your tax deductible contribution to: Scappoose Volunteer Firefighters Association, P.O. Box 625, Scappoose, OR 97056. Please specify that your donation is for Share and Care Food. The Scappoose Volunteer Firefighters Association is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and a receipt of your donation with tax identification number will be mailed back to you.
Thank you for caring and your continued support!
