Hunger is a major problem in Oregon. The problem stems from a number of factors, including unemployment and the ongoing recession. The Oregon Food Bank reports that 535,000 Oregonian lived below the poverty line in 2010. That equates to a shocking poverty rate of 13.8%, which means a lot of people require help getting the food they need for themselves and their families.
Luckily, the Oregon Food Bank is able to help out struggling people thanks to donations from individuals and companies like MyBinding.com. The Oregon Food Bank donated a record-setting 1 million boxes of food to individuals and families last year, and they couldn’t have done it without generous donations. MyBinding.com is proud have donated an incredible 2,621 pounds of food to the Oregon Food Bank last month. The food was donated by employees and delivered to the Oregon Food Bank on the day before Thanksgiving so that less fortunate Oregonians could have a happier Thanksgiving
While 2,621 pounds of food won’t solve the problem, it’s a step in the right direction, and MyBinding.com is proud to have helped out. And you can count on our company to continue doing things that serve the community in the future.
