Oregon Food Bank Best Dressed Barrel

Area Floors signs on to act as a year-round food drop-off site for the Oregon Food Bank (OFB). Both locations will be accepting canned goods and other non-perishable foods to help fight the growing need for food baskets across Oregon. Area Floors has agreed to act as a drop-off location year-round because hunger is a year-round problem.  The goal is to stimulate contributions year-round through ongoing contests and promotions.
