A shared birthday present helps people who need food

Trevor, 8, stands by the food he collected at his birthday party.

Trevor Thibert celebrated his 8th birthday by inviting his friends to bring canned and packaged food to his birthday party instead of presents. He then donated this birthday present of 245 and 1/2 pounds of food to Linn Benton Food Share. He knows because he weighed all of the food on the family scale.

Linn Benton Food Share, a program of Community Services Consortium, was pleased to get the food, and it will be trucked to the Linn Benton Food Share's warehouse in Tangent, sorted and distributed along with thousands of pounds of food to help people who need food in Linn and Benton counties.

Welcome to CSC's blog and e-newsletter!

These communications tools can be used to make announcements, acknowledge donors and volunteers, post videos and slideshows–whatever we want to share with our online community.

There are 3 ways to deliver info to stakeholders:

  1. The blog itself, which can be linked to our current website
  2. Email news blasts (blog articles sent via email as eNewsletters)
  3. RSS Feed (subscribers read in Google Reader or other feed reader, can also send posts to Facebook and Twitter)
We're excited about these communication tools and look forward to both your input and feedback for continuing improvement and positive information-sharing.

If you have agency/program information you'd like posted on this blog, please send full text and/or photos and videos, ideas, or suggestions to Janet Hessel and she will take the next steps.
