Oregon Food Bank Drive

Bridgetown Moving & Storage has been accepting donations for the Oregon Food Bank all month and are excited to have the chance to help out our community during this season of giving. Do you have a move coming up with us this week and a pantry full of cans you don’t want to bring to your new home? Let our movers know! We are happy to bring it back to our warehouse and deliver it to the Oregon Food Bank. If you are not moving with us, you could still drop it off at our warehouse or at any of the donation centers around town. Here is a list of what the Oregon Food Bank is looking for.
