Schwab-FFA food drive underway
Les Schwab Tire Centers team up with Oregon FFA for a hunger drive in October, and that drive is currently in progress.
This is an annual drive since 2013 that has aimed to boost food supplies for the needy in advance of the holiday season. Non-perishable food donations at any Oregon Les Schwab Tire Center, Wilco, or Grange Co-op store through October 31.
Oregon FFA Stewardship OfficerÂ Christa Carlon said that over the past 8 years donations from this effort have provided for nearly three million meals for those in need.
Carlon noted: "The timing of this initiative is important to help our local food banks and pantries gear up for the upcoming holiday demands. This special partnership allows FFA members to live out their motto of 'learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live and living to serve.'"
