During the month of July, Central Electric Cooperative will hold a food drive benefiting NeighborImpact.
According to NeighborImpact, the summer months are when the most food is needed to help local Central Oregon families. Why? There are a lower number of food drives and contributions. Also during the summer, low income kids are home from school where they often receive breakfast and lunch.
“We understand this time of year local food banks have trouble keeping enough items on the shelves for needy families,” says Jeff Beaman, Central Electric Cooperative member services director. “As part of our 75 Acts of Kindness for our 75th Anniversary Celebration, the cooperative wants to lend a hand by holding this drive.”
Bins will be placed at the cooperative’s three office locations in Bend, Redmond and Sisters. The community can drop off non-perishable food donations or cash donations.
- Redmond Service Center – 2098 N Hwy 97
- Bend Service Center – 61090 SE 27th St.
- Sisters office – 352 E Hood St.
