The Northeast Emergency Food Program (NEFP) needs help to chase away hunger from 600 local families monthly. Financial contributions are welcome. So are your volunteer time, food donations and nickels from New Seasons’ Bag It Forward program.
That latter – the donation of 5 cents for each paper bag a customer declines – is at the 33rd Avenue New Seasons. Last quarter NEFP received $1,000.
Volunteers are especially needed to help clients select groceries from nonprofit’s shelves at Luther Memorial Lutheran Church, 4800 N.E. 72nd Ave. Food donations may be delivered there Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
For details about the NEFP and/or to volunteer, call 503.284.5470 or visit the Ecumenical Ministries website.
