Stuff the Truck – Benefiting Local Families In Need
GOOD PEOPLE BRING OUT THE GOOD IN PEOPLE!
We cannot even begin to express how incredibly grateful we are for the phenomenal support and generosity our community showed last Friday, April 24th.
Before the drive had even started (at 11AM) cars were flooding the parking lot with their trunks stuffed full of food and other essentials. We filled the entire truck and several tables full of food, cleaning supplies, and so many more essentials in less than fifteen minutes.
The drive lasted two hours, and in that time we stuffed two full size box trucks and the 2020 GMC Sierra truck with food, cleaning supplies, school supplies, diapers, dog food, and so much more. We also received thousands of dollars in cash and grocery/restaurant gift cards. And just when we thought our hearts could not handle much more, a community member dropped off an anonymous $10,000 donation!!!
All the donations collected will support families in need throughout our community.
Last Friday would not have been possible without so many amazing volunteers, our incredible community partners, Funk/Levis & Associates, Eugene Emeralds, Heritage Distilling Company, Inc, Eugene Education Foundation, Bethel Education Foundation, and Springfield Education Foundation, and our extremely generous community members.
