July 1 - 31, 2018 | Catholic Community Services Food Drive
During the month of July, CCS is proud to partner with the Springfield Grocery Outlet for the Independence from Hunger campaign!
If you donate $5 or more at checkout during the month of July, you'll get a coupon for $5 off your next Grocery Outlet purchase of $25 or more! Every pre-filled bag of groceries worth $5 or more that you purchase for donation is delivered to the CCS Springfield food pantry and distributed to those in need.
Last year our CCS Springfield food pantry served over 10,000 people in our local community.
“In July 2017 we received over $12,000 in food items from the Independence from Hunger Campaign with Springfield Grocery Outlet! ¬This was used to help provide basic food necessities for our neighbors in need in the Springfield community via our food pantry and other CCS programs,” said Tom Mulhern, Executive Director at Catholic Community Services of Lane County. “We are grateful to the local community for its incredible support of Grocery Outlet’s Independence from Hunger Campaign and also to owners, Tracy and Tom Hogan, for sponsoring this fundraiser on our behalf since 2015.”
