Upcoming Match Day Drive: Impact NW

Impact NW is a local organization that has been helping low-income Portland residents since 1966. Today, they have services available in Multnomah, Clark, Washington and Clackamas Counties and parts of Washington state. In our upcoming Match Day Drive, our focus will be on filling their pantry near the stadium.

Impact NW offers immediate assistance to those in our community who are either homeless or in transition, and often those they are helping do not have access to food prep stations.

Please bring non-perishable pantry items to the Fanladen (1633 SW Alder St) before you head into the stadium. The individuals and families these organizations are helping may not have access to a safe home to cook in, so if your item requires cooking, please make it microwavable and easy to open. Often those seeking help are in need of very substantial (protein-heavy) foods, like peanut butter or tuna. Below is a complete list of the items we are looking to collect:

Oatmeal (packets)
Peanut butter (jars and single-serve cups)
Cereals (single-serve packages)
Pop-Tarts
Noodles and pasta (canned with pop-up lids, cups, or microwavable bags)
Rice dishes (cups, microwavable bags)
Mac & cheese (regular boxed and microwavable)
Fruit cups
Fruit leather
Granola/trail bars
Crackers
Rice cakes (Quaker)
Assorted nuts (single-serve packages)
Juice box packs
Canned goods (pop-up lids are best, please) – Soup, vegetables, tuna, chili

As always, thank you for your care, generosity, and concern for vulnerable neighbors in our community.
