Ski 4 Sunshine Free Ski Day at Mt Hood SkiBowl.
Posted by Mt Hood Vacation Rentals | Wednesday, March 5, 2008

Ski or snowboard for free at Mt Hood SkiBowl from 9AM - 4PM this coming Friday, March 7th, when you bring 4 cans of food. The Oregon Food Bank (OFB) is the hub of a network of 919 hunger-relief agencies throughout Oregon and Clark County, Washington, distributing 752,044 Emergency Food Boxes between July 1, 2006 & June 30, 2007. Did you know that 47% of families receiving food have one person in their household working? And that 37% of the food recipients are children?





The Oregon Great Food Drive has a goal of raising 1 million pounds of food during the month of March. If you won't be able to make it up to Mt Hood on Friday to ski at SkiBowl, there are several other ways you can contribute to Oregon's Great Food Drive.


Donate $10 to OFB. Every $10 you donate enables OFB to provide enough food to help an agency fill an emergency food box -- enough food to feed a family for four days.

Purchase Tillamook Cheese from any retailer. For every pound sold, Tillamook Cheese will donate one cent to the Great Food Drive. Last year, Tillamook's statewide cheese sales resulted in a $16,000 donation to the Great Food Drive. Look for Great Food Drive signs at Albertsons, Fred Meyer and New Seasons Markets. New Seasons Markets will have demonstrations and specials featuring Tillamook Cheese. Customers can also donate food at any New Seasons location or donate cash online at New Seasons Market's Web site.

Donate cash or nonperishable food at KGW's studios, 1501 S.W. Jefferson in Portland.

Stay in a Mt Hood Vacation Rental Home during March 2008, and Cascade Property Management will donate $1 for each reservation to the Oregon Food Bank. Drop off your left-over non-perishable high-nutrition value foods at our office at check-out and we will donate those items to the Great Food Drive for you.
