Hood River Christmas Project coordinators Irv and Sherril Smith are seeking assistance for the program to help the county’s needy.
Food, toys, sponsorships for families and seniors, and cash, are needed, as well as volunteers.
The committee is looking for new people to help with organizing and directing various aspects of the project. If you feel you would like more information on how to get involved, call the Smiths at 490-3625.
To contribute to Christmas Project, mail checks to P.O. Box 682, Hood River, OR 97301. All donations are tax-deductible.
Individuals, groups or families wishing to sponsor families or seniors may call Anne Cathey at 354-3750. Sites where new toys and food can be donated will be announced later this month.
Applications for assistance with holiday food and children’s gifts will be taken again this year at the State Office Building, 1610 9th Ct., in the Heights, located off Pacific Avenue, each Friday and Saturday through Nov. 22, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. In addition, applications will be taken in Cascade Locks at the library on Nov. 13, 5 to 8 p.m., and in Parkdale at a time and location to be named later. The program is available to families meeting Food Stamp Program eligibility standards, although they do not need to be actually receiving Food Stamps.
Families wishing to apply will need to bring proof of income and Hood River County residence (power bill, phone bill or rent receipt) and a birth certificate, Oregon Health Plan paper, WIC card, or other document for each child living in the home.
