PLR Listeners Give More Than 12,000 Pounds of Food to Local Food Banks

Positive Life Radio listeners once again stepped up to feed hungry people across the Northwest with the Hands and Heart: Christmas in July Food Drive.

At the 24th annual event, listeners and volunteers collected more than 12,000 pounds of food and cash donations for local food banks at several locations from Portland, Oregon, to Lewiston, Idaho.

This community project is especially important as food banks across the United States struggle to provide for their clients due to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and inflation. The food donations provided by PLR listeners will help replenish already low stocks and help support Northwest families in need.

"We love shining the spotlight on the food banks in our communities, especially in the summer when food donations run low," said Chris Gilbreth, PLR general manager. "It was especially rewarding to meet people who made it a whole-family thing to buy the food and bring it to the donation drop-offs."
