December 2020 - The Salvation Army is thankful for Fred Meyer's generosity to the community and for their commitment to end hunger. The Salvation Army has 21 food pantries across Oregon and Southern Idaho, and Fred Meyer's support helps us feed those in need in our communities. Last year, The Salvation Army served over 285,000 people in Oregon and Southern Idaho.
Each November and December, Fred Meyer welcomes The Salvation Army to bell ring at their stores across Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Alaska. The funds raised during the Christmas season sustains The Salvation Army's services 365 days a year.
Fred Meyer holds a Christmas toy drive at their stores every year to collect donations for local kids in need. The Salvation Army was able to distribute 3,222 toys across Oregon and Southern Idaho in December 2020 from Fred Meyer's Fred Bear Toy Drive.
In partnership with the Portland Trailblazers, Fred Meyer donated 8,654 coats (and still counting) to The Salvation Army. These are being distributed to neighbors in need during this winter season.
With the Oregon Wildfires that affected so many people, Fred Meyer provided samples and other personal care items for wildfire victims and shelter residents.
Thank you, Fred Meyer, for helping so many in our community!
