When: Tuesday, October 23
Where: Portland, OR
RA50 kicked things off in Portland by making a special delivery to the Oregon Food Bank headquarters, which distributes donated food to 20 regional food banks, who then distributes the food to more than 900 programs and agencies throughout Oregon and Clark County area. To support Oregon Food Bank’s efforts, we stocked the shelves with a wide range of household products, personal care items, cleaning supplies and healthy snacks – all essentials for local Portland families in need. Also, just in time for cold and flu season, the staff and volunteers were visited by our Cold & Flu Crew, who provided wellness tips, free flu shots and also “flu proofed” the facility. At the end of the event, Rite Aid team members were offered the opportunity to volunteer their services for future needs, and gladly accepted!
