Thank you US Foods of Newport!


THANK YOU to our generous community and business partner US Foods for a contribution of $1550 from your annual charitable fund drive! Your support enables us to help the most vulnerable families and individuals in our community. With the increased cost of basic needs such as food and housing, even a one-time trip to a food pantry can prevent a family from going without heat, medication, or adequate transportation. With gratitude……

Special Thanks to Surf Town Coffee!

What a WONDERFUL gift of local support from Surf Town Coffee Company & Grocery Outlet… paying it forward to champion hunger relief in Lincoln County getting over 1,100 pounds of non-perishable food to us for distribution.

The owner, Brendan, told us he got lucky with his Game Stop endeavours and wanted to pass along his good fortune to those who needed it most. Thanks so much Brendan and Surf Town Coffee Company. Here’s to you! ☕
