Oregon SC Food Drive Aug. 11: Help Us Fill the Shelves at the Oregon Area Food Pantry (UPDATED)

By ERIC ANDERSON, 07/29/21, 8:00AM CDT


UPDATE: This event was rescheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 11.

While it is important for Oregon Soccer Club to foster development, education and enjoyment for our players on the field, we also pride ourselves on being a positive member of our community - and teaching kids the importance of giving back to their community.

To help advance that concept, we're happy to announce that we will once again be holding several food drives for the Oregon Area Food Pantry during the 2021-22 season. Thank you to Kerri Modjeski for volunteering to coordinate this important program.

Our first food drive will be Wednesday, Aug. 11. We're asking for the soccer community to help donate to the food pantry and fill their shelves for their next distribution. Your donation today will help a local family tomorrow - one can of soup or one box of macaroni and cheese is all we are asking for, but if you can do more, great.

The Oregon Area Food Pantry will accept all non-perishable food items and toiletries, but has a particular need for the following:

  • Cereal
  • Peanut butter
  • Soup
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Pasta
  • Tomato sauce
  • Meal kits such as Hamburger Helper

We cannot accept expired food, home-canned foods, home-baked goods, opened packages or any food you would not feed to your family.

Financial donations will be accepted in addition to food donations.

To make it convenient, we will be available to accept donations at several practice fields that day. Large bins will be placed at each field during the following times:

JPW-24 JPW-20 HMP-44
8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

If you have any questions, please call or text Kerri at 608-220-5652. We plan to hold another food drive during the Oregon Soccer Fall Fury from Oct. 1-3, and one more in Spring 2022.
