Thank you so much to all of our 92.3ers for helping us raise over 102,000 meals for the Oregon Food Bank! Also, big thanks to Tito's Vodka for matching up to $1,500 for the second year in a row, and to Dave's Garage Doors who will continue supporting the Oregon Food Bank throughout April and May!
Our Oregon community is facing the highest need for food assistance in at least a generation. Due to the effects of COVID-19 and the 2020 Oregon Wildfires, nearly 1 in 5 of our neighbors face hunger — double the 1 in 10 we saw prior to the pandemic.
That's why we are going to raise money for the Oregon Food Bank to help meet those needs with our 2nd Annual Friends Feeding Friends Virtual Food Drive. Every dollar we raise provides three meals, so any amount you can donate will truly impact people's lives.
This Friday is the last day to donate. Listen to Terry Boyd’s World live for the last 12 hours of the food drive as Terry and Brain make the final push for 92, 300 meals.
Last year friends of show helped Terry Boyd’s World raise over 50,000 meals for our neighbors in need here at home. This year Terry and Brian want to nearly DOUBLE that!
Please join us now through Friday, April 2nd as we raise money for the Oregon Food Bank all day long. This is a 100% virtual food drive. No lines of cars or cans of cream corn, just monetary donations. You can also donate prior to the date if you aren't able to join!
The last three hours of the drive will be sponsored by Tito's Vodka!
Dave's Garage Doors will also be sponsoring the 2pm hour and throughout April and May, they will be donating $5 of each service call and tune up to the Oregon Food Bank!
Help us reach our goal of getting 92,300 meals out to the Oregon community! Every $10 can equal 30 meals so anything you can provide helps. Together we can support each other through these hard times.
