News for January 12  January 12th, 2009

Jamba Juice, located at 2001 NW Monroe Avenue, is offering 20% of procedes in the month of February that can go to the Linn Benton Food Share! All you have to do is mention the Food Drive or the Food Share when making a purchase and their cash register system will ear mark 20% to be given at the end of the month. But you have to tell them that you want this to happen! Thanks Jamba Juice for helping to Feed the Need!

Coordinators: Jamba Juice is also offering colorful boxes for food collection. If you would like to use one or more of their boxes, please visit the store and ask for the manager (Ben).

Have you collected food at your event and want to get it in the hands of the needy as soon as possible? OSU Motor Pool is offering a food collection location for the entire month of February. That’s right, just pull under their awning (located at 3200 Campus Way) between 7:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday – Friday, and they will even unload it for you! Weigh in and receipts are available. *Regular Campus Freight pickups will still be available during the second half of the drive.* Thanks Justin for offering this convenient option for food raisers to empty their trunk!

Update – cash  January 6th, 2009

We are very excited to welcome the Cashiers Office to our food drive efforts. Why? Because they will be collecting all the cash donations! We’ll have a new donations ledger posted shortly that will include the details that are listed on your “Quick Reference” sheet for the exact procedure and location for taking your deposit. Payroll forms still come to University Events for tracking, and we’ll end up with the ledger, it’s just that the Cashiers Office will handle the bucks! (Thanks again cashiers crew!)

Governor’s Challenge – update  December 22nd, 2008

You should be receiving your packet soon, if you haven’t already.  I’ve only heard of one change and that is that the Governor’s Challenge is for $144 this year.  (Please note that this is an increase from last year’s $120 challenge.)

Don’t forget to submit your ideas in regard to a location for the social gathering on January 20 (not required, it’s just for fun.)  Kate and I look forward to hearing what your favorite spots are!
