Exceed Enterprises recently wrapped up its Spring Food Drive for the North Clackamas Family Support Center, collecting nearly 400 pounds of food in two weeks.
Collection bins were distributed throughout the Milwaukie area and Exceed’s staff and people with disabilities that we serve collected and packaged food for the Center. The pantry provides food for nearly 1,000 students a year.
“The people with disabilities that we serve were so excited to help with this project,” said Shanna Moro, Exceed’s Community Integration Specialist, who led the Spring Food Drive. “It was a fantastic way for everyone to contribute to the community in which they work and live in.”
“The food came at the perfect time,” said Kristin Kinnie, Site Coordinator/Homeless Liaison for the North Clackamas Family Support Center. “We served a lot of families in the last couple weeks and our shelves were looking a little bare. This food helped us restock and is already in the homes of many of our families in need.”
