“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” – Oscar Wilde
We are grateful to be able to fight hunger and support our community by collecting food and donations for a Lift UP Food Drive! The need is great for shelf-stable, healthy pantry items in our area. We invite you to join us in this venture! There are two ways you can donate to this food drive:
1. Drop off food donations to the D’Amore Law Group — Lake Oswego Office: Galewood Street Suite 200 Lake Oswego, OR 97035. Donations can be made on Tuesday, May 26 and Thursday, May 28 between the hours of 9:00am-6:00pm. We will have staff on-hand to collect donations while still maintaining safe protocols. You will be able to drive up and give your donation to a staff member without having to enter the building. If you put your donation in your trunk, you’ll only have to pop it open and we’ll take care of the rest!
These high demand items maximize the impact for our neighbors:
- Low sodium foods (under 140 mg per serving)
- Low or no sugar added foods
- Gluten-free foods
- Nut butters
- Canned tuna or meat
- Canned beans
- Brown rice
- Whole grains
- Cans or cartons of soup
2. Make a Donation Online: Partners like Oregon Food Bank allow Lift UP to purchase food at very low costs. Financial contributions go a long way! Every $5 donation equals 15 meals.
Any donation, great or small, helps those who are food insecure. We look forward to partnering with you to assist our friends and neighbors during this time.
