Giving Tuesday: Sluggo and the Eugene Emeralds help out at FOOD for Lane County
EUGENE, Ore. - Sluggo and the Eugene Emeralds spent Giving Tuesday at the Food for Lane County warehouse helping sort food donations from the Letter Carriers Food Drive.
"We've started sorting out all of that to get out to families as soon as possible," said Dawn Marie Woodward with Food for Lane County. "Sluggo and his office staff have come to help out. We're really excited about that opportunity. They've partnered with us a couple times."
"Everybody wants to help out with the holidays," said Allan Benavides, the team's general manager. "We're here to help out because it's the holidays, but I think it's something we've got to focus on year-round. During the holidays everybody thinks about helping out, especially Food for Lane County - but Food for Lane County is doing this 365 days out of the year."
Woodward said Food for Lane County is still in need of volunteers to help sort out food this holiday season.
