Community Action Connect: An Opportunity for Neighbors to Help Their Neighbors!
Thanks to the ORCCA Connect Program many families have been provided with household furnishings, which have included tables, chairs, kitchen items, and a dryer. If you have used and in good condition items that you would like to donate, please call Michelle at 888-7023.
The Care-A-Van food drive event coordinated by ORCCA, the Coos Bay-North Bend Rotary, and the World Newspaper, culminated in a victory lap around the Bay Area on Saturday, July 11. The event ran through June and the beginning of July, with 40 local businesses participating. Care-A-Van brought in three tons of food! Thanks to the generosity of local donors, local businesses and the great volunteers who drove the Care-A-Van vehicles and delivered the food, over 600 hungry families will be able to eat from emergency food at local pantries in Coos & Curry Counties!
Kudos to Dawn & Clark at the World Newspaper, Sharon & Emily at ORCCA, and the many, many others who participated and coordinated this fantastic event!
