Food Drive Needs Our Support

Each year during Lent, Hillsdale UCC participates with other congregations in Neighborhood House’s SW Hope food drive.

Each spring since 2007, faith organizations and community partners work together to meet the needs of hungry people in Southwest Portland.

What is the need? Despite economic growth in recent years more than 17 percent of our fellow Multnomah County residents are living in poverty.

Neighborhood House operates the largest food pantry on Portland’s west side, currently providing food boxes to approximately 500 families (or 1,200-1,500 individuals) each month, up from 270 before the recession hit. Please give generously to the food drive. Your donations of both food and money are very appreciated.
