Oregon FFA and Les Schwab Tires Center again are teaming up for the Drive Away Hunger initiative.

With the need to help fight hunger greater than ever, the project partners urge people to drop off non-perishable food items at any Oregon Les Schwab Tire Center, Wilco or Grange Co-op locations. Donations will be accepted through Oct. 31.

In a press release from Christa Carlon, Oregon FFA Foundation’s stewardship officer, the special partnership allows FFA members to live out their motto of “learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live and living to serve.” Over the past 8 years, Drive Away Hunger has raised nearly three million meals for those in need.

For more information about the initiative, email Carlon at christa@oregonffa.com, search www.facebook.com/OregonFFA or visit www.lesschwab.com/drive-away-hunger.
