Pacific Northwest-based MSO delivers holiday meals to eight organizations.
On Nov. 13, several shop managers from Kadel’s Auto Body postponed their morning tasks to deliver more than 100 turkeys to eight food banks in the Portland, Vancouver, Salem and Eugene areas. An equivalent cash donation was gifted to a Tigard, Ore.-based food pantry.
"The employees and owners of Kadel’s Auto Body live and work in these communities. When we see that our neighbors have fallen on hard times, we want to help," said Dan Braden, president and CEO of Kadel’s Auto Body.
Shop managers Dave Donahue and Brian West donated turkeys to Snowcap Community Charities, where a staff member explained that food pantries are not often able to get special holiday items from the Oregon Food Bank.
"Thank you to Kadel’s for providing these turkeys for the ever-increasing need that we see every day," said Eileen DiCicco, development associate at the Marion-Polk Food Share.
Turkeys were also donated to the following organizations:
Clark County Food Bank Vancouver, Wash.
Good Samaritan Center North Portland, Ore.
Marion-Polk Food Share Salem, Ore.
Salem Evangelical Church Salem, Ore.
The Salvation Army Food Bank Eugene and Springfield, Ore.
The Lamplighters Eugene, Ore.
