SEE THE NEW TRUCK DONATED BY WALMART

JULY 18, 2014

Late last year we received a grant from the Walmart Foundation to purchase a new box truck for the food pantry. The truck has since been purchased and is now at PACS. We will dedicate it during a brief event on July 30 at 12:30 p.m. (11020 NE Halsey St, Portland). We invite you to join us for this event and get a chance to see the truck up close. The new truck was financed entirely by a $62,738 grant from the Walmart Foundation. We are tremendously grateful for this wonderful gift. It improves on the vehicle it replaces by providing added capacity to gather food donations, and refrigeration to keep the food fresh during transport.
