Two Can Tuesday on a Saturday? Yes, we can!
It's been a few years since Positive Charge! PDX launched its Two Can Tuesday food donation pick-up program. Now it is being expanded to a Saturday for one day only with a mini food drive in support of Neighborhood House's SW Hope project .
On Saturday, March 18, from 10am-1pm you can drop-off your non-perishable food donations at the Neighborhood House Food Pantry, or sign-up to have your donations picked up at your home that day (the Food Pantry will hold special open hours). Monetary donations accepted online or at the Food Pantry.
Email info@PositiveChargePDX.org to sign up for pick-up or to volunteer as a driver.
The SW Hope campaign runs from February 26 through April 15.
"Can" you dig it? "Can" you feel the love tonight? Yes, we "can" "can." If you like puns on songs with the word "can," let us know.
