The Oregon Food Bank is a statewide network of agencies that distribute emergency food to hungry families throughout Oregon and Clark County, Washington. More than 94 cents of every dollar donated to the Oregon Food Bank goes directly to fighting hunger. The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption and rescue located in Portland. Pixie aims to make animal adoptions a positive experience for the whole family. They provide an on-site clinic for low-income and homeless pet owners, giving access to vital veterinary care and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries. Both great causes and all monies go directly to these projects.
Plan ahead and get your turkey day organized so you can join in the fun. Burn off some calories and help others in need with the 4th Annual Burn It Off for Hunger on November 26th. It’s a perfect way to celebrate Thanksgiving. Help feed hungry families and animals in need. It just takes a small cash donation, some non-perishable food and your running shoes. All ages and abilities are invited, strollers are welcome and leashed dogs are even encouraged to come out too.
