Last year, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, I was able to drive to the Oregon Food Bank distribution center in a car loaded with 365 pounds of food. All thanks to you, Blogtown readers.

Given last year’s success, I figured we should do it again this year. So, starting tomorrow, we will be collecting your non-perishable food items here at the Mercury offices [605 NE 21st Ave., Suite 200] between the hours of 9:30 AM and 4:30 PM. The drive will end next Wednesday, the 25th, at noon.

Let’s see what we can pull together in six days, shall we? I have tons of faith in you.
