On Saturday, February 11, 2017, the Tualatin Lions Club is partnering with the Walmart stores in Sherwood and Tigard to help re-stock the Oregon Food Bank's shelves. The Lions will be available to accept donations between 9 AM and 3 PM at the front doors of the Sherwood Walmart, 21320 S Langer Farms Parkway, Sherwood and the Tigard Walmart, 7600 SW Dartmouth Street, Tigard.
The shelves of the Oregon Food Bank are always in need of re-stocking, especially now, following the holiday season and the weather-generated emergency food needs of the last several weeks. Items that are always welcome include paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.), protein in the form of canned meats, beans, peanut butter, etc., pastas, canned soups, vegetables and fruits and personal products (shampoo, toothpaste, etc.). Almost anything that one can buy at the Walmart grocery center would be gladly accepted.
This is the second year for the Tualatin Lions "Double-Play" Food Drive. Last year the Lions raised almost a ton of food from the generous people shopping at Walmart and, they look forward to gathering even more this year. Walmart shoppers should look for the food barrels form the Oregon Food Bank and the banners of the Tualatin Lions Club.
The Tualatin Lions Club is a regional community service club, providing services to children, seniors and families throughout southeast Washington County. In addition to food, personal products and paper products, the Lions Club members staffing the collection sites will gladly accept monetary donations to the Oregon Food Bank.
The Oregon Food Bank provides food to regional food banks throughout Oregon. In southeast Washington County, food banks in Tigard, Tualatin and Sherwood all receive help from the Oregon Food Bank.
