Our second Lenten service project.

Monday, March 19, 2012—Thursday, April 5, 2012 (a week on each side of Spring Break)

41 years ago area High School Students began Project Second Wind because they recognized that HUNGER DOESN’T TAKE A HOLIDAY. Clackamas and Washington County schools have joined together with Oregon Food Bank for this major food drive. Together we can refill emergency food boxes and feed the hungry.

Did you know Oregon is #1 in the nation in child hunger? A third of those eating meals from donated food boxes are children. But you and your family can do something to help! Please join in with OFB and  Visitation during Project Second Wind to collect food or (each donated $1 equals about 8 lbs. of food).

Donations benefit Oregon Food Bank, who serves people in Oregon and Clark County, WA. In Clackamas and Washington County, OFB distributes food to more than 100 hunger-relief agencies. Donations made during Project Second Wind remain in the community.

  • ·Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon etc.) ·Canned or dried beans and peas ·Canned and boxed meals (such as soup, stew, macaroni and cheese) ·Peanut butter or other nut butters
  • ·Canned fruits and vegetables ·100% fruit juice or vegetable juice ·Cooking oil ·Shelf-stable milk ·Pasta, rice, cereal ·Consider donating healthy, low-fat and low-sugar products
