"2011 Astoria Giving"

Mon, Oct 31, 2011

During the month of November the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) asks that you share with others and spread the bounty! We encourage you to give your canned food to the Clatsop County Regional Food Bank!

To make giving easier ADHDA has compiled list of convenient downtown locations to drop off your canned goods. Your donations will help make the holidays a little brighter for many of community members less fortunate than us.

Look through your cupboard and drop off at any of the following locations: the Columbia River Maritime Museum, Sterling Savings Bank, Amazing Stories, Home Interior Consignments, Finn Ware, Fulio’s Pastaria, Roby’s Furniture, Erickson’s Floral Co., Wauna Federal Credit Union, Interior Style, Commercial Street Antiques, Bank of Astoria, Gimre’s Shoes, Purple Cow Toys, Video Horizons, Vintage Hardware, Bloomin’ Crazy Floral, Curious Caterpillar, Old Town Framing Co., Rusty Cup, KMUN and the Astoria Public Library.

Please note that the Astoria Public Library is once again running their “Food for Fines” promotion. Just bring in an item from the “Most Wanted List” and they will waive $2 of your fines for each item, up to a total of $20. Their collections will also be donated to the CCA Regional Food Bank.

The CCA Regional Food Bank’s “Most Wanted List” for canned goods donations include peanut butter, jelly, tuna, canned meats, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, canned fruit and vegetables, dry beans, mac & cheese, box juices, flour, sugar, coffee, tea, bar soap, toothpaste and paper products. Please no Ramen products, or dented/outdated products.

If you have any questions please contact Downtown Coordinator Blaire Buergler at 503.791.7940 or
