Time Once Again to Remind You to Donate to Local Food Projects
During Thanksgiving schools are closed for four days so kids won’t get free breakfast and lunch. I am not sure how long Christmas break will be, but it is generally 14 days. More food is needed during this time.
Our Main Food Bank in North Tillamook County is the North County Food Bank (NCFB) located across the parking lot from the Nehalem Bay Health Center, 230 Rowe Street, Wheeler, Oregon. The NCFB will be serving recipients a full Thanksgiving Meal this coming Tuesday. The NCFB opens at noon on Tuesday. Donations of food and money are always welcome. No home cooked food or home canned items please. You can give by dropping off donations at noon at the NCFB, or by sending a check to NCFB, PO Box 162, Wheeler, Oregon, 97147. Donations to this food bank are needed year around. And please don’t forget the clothing bank.
The Methodist Church in Nehalem also has a food bank and clothing bank. They are open Monday, Friday, and Saturday from ten to two. Address for them is Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church, PO Box 156, Nehalem, Oregon 97131. Be sure to write on your check where you want your money to go. Also, at the Church they serve Senior meals on Tuesday and Thursday from noon to one. You can eat there or request delivery. Call 503-368-6081.
Meals for Seniors in Rockaway Beach is at St. Mary’s by the Sea Catholic Church. They are served Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 11:30-12:30. They also deliver meals. To support their program, you can mail a check to Meals for Seniors, PO Box 852, Rockaway Beach, Or. 97136
The Lions Club in Rockaway Beach continues to turkey dinner with all the trimmings to families on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Your help with this cause is also appreciated. Their mailing address is Rockaway Lions, PO Box 611, Rockaway Beach, 97136
Do hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Not sure who said this – If you have enough, giving ought to bring you great joy!
