Food Drive events

February 14th, 2011

By two o’clock on Valentine’s Day, $270-worth of goodies had been sold. That computes to 1,350 pounds of food for the for the Linn-Benton Food Drive. Faculty, staff and students contributed their time and talent by baking astonishingly tasty treats for the bake sale fundraiser. The sale will continue until every crumb has been sold!

Scour your home/garage/property/storage units for the upcoming yard sale. Items can be dropped off this week at the horse arena for the yard sale this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. There are two marked horse stalls next to the south entrance of the arena for your items.

Silent auction items can be left with Lindy in the atrium. The silent auction will be held Tuesday through Friday 2 p.m., February 22 − 25.

Inspired salad makers can bring their specialties to share on Wednesday, February 23. This will be the last food event for the Food Drive, so bring salads and your appetite.

Don’t forget to buy a ticket (or more) for a Grand Prize Drawing! Two $75 Fred Meyer gift cards can be won. Tickets can be purchased for $1 each or six for $5 at Small Animal Reception or from Lindy in the atrium. Tickets will also be available at food drive events. The Dean’s Cabinet sponsored the gift card drawing.

Actual food donations are lagging a bit this year — please think of the food drive when you go grocery shopping or look in your cupboard. Food donation boxes can be found all over the College. Interested in other totals so far? The soup sale brought in $280, and the hot dog sale a whopping $442.

Want a painless, less fattening, way to give? Have monthly payroll deductions made for as little as $5 per month. Lindy has the forms.
