Letter: Thank you from Share & Care
Scappoose Share & Care wishes to thank everyone who helped with the 2018 program at Christmas.
This community really pulled together and provided food, toys and healthcare items to over 200 families in need. Local businesses let us place Giving Trees at their locations, which provided many specifically requested gifts.
Our great community donated canned food, adopted other families, donated frozen turkeys and donated cash and toys.
Our annual participation with the Christmas Ships and their various gatherings along the route brought in bags and bags of toys and cash donations. A highlight of our year is decorating the Scappoose Fire District Fire Boat and parading Santa along our waterfront!
Please remember that our Scappoose families in need don't just need help at Christmas, they need help all year long. Please consider making a food or cash donation to your local food bank in Scappoose. St. Vincent DePaul Foodbank 51555 SW Old Portland Road, Scappoose, OR 97056. You may drop off food on Mondays or Thursdays from 1 to 3 p.m. or call for details 503-543-7495 Ext. 15.
