CARES Center Continues to Help Community
The CARES (Community Aligned Resources for Eugene/Springfield) Center continues to provide food and other resources to community members in need.
In October, the CARES Center served 684 households and 2,262 individuals including children. In addition,17 amazing volunteers logged nearly 170 hours in one month! We are grateful for the dedicated volunteers and community partners who are helping to fight food insecurity in our community.
With the holidays and cooler weather approaching, the CARES Center is in need of turkeys and winter apparel, such as coats, socks and gloves. If you can donate a turkey or winter clothes, please contact Edith. Please do not drop off donations without first scheduling an appointment.
